I've moved you into here as it's a more suitable part of the forum and I've added my cyber squiggle to it as well :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Now please don't get tooooo excited but......

If my recent, (last month), experience of the ATOS assessment is anything to go by, I reckon the DWP just might have now realized that they should recognize fibro and CFS as being real and debilitating conditions! I was quite taken aback at how the doctor doing my assessment kept focussing on the chronic fatigoo problems and how it affected me on a day to day basis more than any of my many other conditions such as the osteo-arthritis or cervical spondylosis to name but 2 :lol:

In fact when we came out, I asked my husband if it had been my imagination about how she kept harping on and on about the chronic fatigoo and he said that it wasn't my imagination, he'd noticed it too. I suggested to him that the chronic fatigoo must've been the magic word as I was told before leaving that she would be recommending me for the ESA Support group and would be informing the DWP that I should not be asked to go to any further assessments ever again. I expect she just meant that I ought to have them done at home, but she'd been amazed to see virtually a zombie hobbling/stumbling into her examination room :oops: For once, I think I should be grateful to my mahoosive fibro flare up that I had at the time of the assessment and for the weeks leading up to it. It may actually have done me a favour for once :sleep:

My niece wasn't told how her assessment had gone on the day and didn't know until she got the official letter some weeks later. I, on the other hand, didn't relax until I did have that official decision arrive in writing and even then, still not totes relaxed coz I've still got the PIP hurdle to 'look forward to' anytime from 2015 onwards I've been told and I seriously don't want to lose my DLA or else I'll be at risk of becoming a complete hermit!!!!! If they don't get you one way, they'll get you another eh? :yikes:

Still, it's defo looking more promising re having the fibro and CFS officially recognized for these assessments.

Gentle hugglies,
