Hi all, I hope you are all keeping relatively well? It's been a few weeks of bed-ridden exhaustion for me, but I am feeling well enough to sit at my PC today, thank goodness. I have the dreaded medical Assessment coming up in 2 weeks time (16th of October), and am SO scared. I have to go alone which will make it worse. I have had a report from my GP and sent that to DWP, with supporting proof of the Exceptional Circumstances rule with the Black Triangle Group, but still I have to go for the medical. I have a gut feeling that they are going to fail me, and I'll have to appeal. It is just to go from the work-related ESA Benefit Group to the Support group, which I should clearly be on. Much as I'd love one, I couldn't hold down a job whilst i have to go back to bed most of the week, it's ludicrous. I have two weeks of panicking and scaredness ahead of me and it's wearing me out already. I just paid almost £20 for the 'Benefits and Work' online association, but I can't see much help from them to be honest. Why should we be put through such nastiness when we are genuinely ill? I have over 38 years of full-time employment behind me, so i am clearly not a shirker. I wish I was putting on ill health as I'd dearly love to be fit and well. Such is life eh.
Onwards and upwards, it can either help me or kill me.
Best of luck to anyone else going through this too.
