So i have asked for my MR today. After thinking about it for a few weeks and also going through the report with a fine tooth comb i thought that there were so many things that were incorrect i felt i had no choice. The case manager who i spoke to gave me the usual lecture that the whole award will be looked at again and they will let me know as soon as they can. I also told her i have sent in all my medical evidence and that on my letter from my doctor it stated that due to my condition and my meds this causes me to have low moods. On my report she stated i am not on any meds for my low mood. I spoke to my doctor today who informed me that this is not the case. One of my meds is amitriptyline which is a trycilic drug. This acts as a pain killer and a anti depressant and because this is the case instead of having more meds on top of the 30 a day i have to take that these would have a dual use. Also the assesor had said that i seemed lucid and coherant with no signs of confusion. This also was untrue as i did get confused on neumorous occasions. So much so she suggested that she wrote a note for my carer as to the documents which had to be posted. Off her own back may i add so this in itself should add more points. Also she has stated that i do not need help to take meds ect. I told her that on the rare occassions when my carer is not here i need my tabs in a box marked with days of the week. This is because i have previously taken to many tablets as i have not remembered i have taken them due to being out of it on meds. So that should have been points as well. Also i told her although my bills get paid by DD this was set up because i got myself in to debt because of my poor memory if i forget to pay them and i need ongoing help with budgeting. Yet again 0 points. She scored me 9 points in total where the citizens advice did a self assesment and scored 69 HELL OF A DIFFERENCE ! So i will keep you all updated
