I have been claiming IB for 8 weeks know and on friday I was called into the jobcentre to be interviewed to find out what was happening. The person did not have a clue about the illness he asked me if I would be having an operation and when it would be. Luckily I had taken a leaflet with me that explained the illness. It was the one from the charity BRAME that lists symptoms and problems we face. After he read it he luughted and said I suffer some of these things. He soon added well some of the time and midly, probably when he saw my face. :steam:
He soon changed the subject and moved on to talk about other help they could offer me. He asked me to attend a course to build my confidence and learn how to live with my illness. I refused and told them I attend the m.e clinic and have an o.t that visits and helps me. He said I needed preparing for my return to work. I told him I worked for the NHS and when the doctor thought I was ready the occopational health people would see me and do what was necessary. He said in 4 weeks time I weould be called in again to review my progress. He left me feeling :twisted: :doh: :bleep: :steam: :cry:
