    hi all thanks for replys mine wasn't so bad as I had a really nice lady my advice would be take all your medication with u any medical evidence u have letters off docs etc the person doing the assesment with ask number of questions about your condition how long had it when dignosed etc and how it affects u on a daily basis but when answering the person always answer (on a bad day) and just be as truthfull as u can end of the day they r only typing the report they don't make the decision weather u get the benifit but my report was brill u can ask for a copy of this aswell once it's reached the dwp

    Hi Sara

    Excellent news for you I have my Pip mandatory reconsideration Tuesday at 10 and then next Friday I have my ESA assessment I am already stressed about both of these that my fibro is in overdrive and have to decide whether go on single crutch or take my wheelchair because I work driving children too and home from school off till 12th April and don't want to wake up in the morning so lacking energy and never wake refreshed think this will be my last year working as in so much chronic pain everywhere and been suffering Golfers elbow in my dominant arm since start of the year and getting worse every day another adage I could do without as getting impossible to lift or carry anything anymore even with my new orthotic for my fused left hand and wrist to mid arm not allowed to use this and awaiting recast as can't even use cutlery or keep hold of anything.  Can I ask was this a tribunal or just your home assessment mine was done by a paramedic of 25 years experience but from what she put down and I now in receipt of these comments because I am a mum was judged that I only qualified for daily living but my support at CAB said my application she filled in on my behalf had been totally ignored and she feels getting mobility is also qualified for so will have whatever I can cross this day that they look again at my equipment needs and have also put myself through a disability driving assessment where it is advised would benefit better with an automatic and use only my right leg and foot rather than the weaker left side disabilities and weakness of which there are many from shoulder to toes.  Sorry this is long but really dreading this hearing.  Will take along my ESA fit notes too in support.  Julia
