Have had ATOS assessment today!Treat you like an idiot!!!

Postby janderhip » Thu Feb 14, 2013 4:40 pm

I have been for my 3 month assessment with Atos today as been signed off with PMR and possibly Fibromyalgia as well. I was in there for just over 10 minutes and felt like my intelligence and rights as a human had been insulted.
The assessor spent more time asking what I watched on TV,asking my hobbies(none of which I can do anymore),whether I had a mobile phone and could if I use it, also who was on the throne,the date, and what big sporting event happened last year! Also tried to catch me out on whether I did voluntary work, had friends to visit and cooked them food, whether I went out at night and did bingo or karaoke(i nearly laughed at that suggestion). Not much emphesis on how much pain I was in, and all my other symptoms.
I see my GP tomorrow and will let her know how ATOS treats people(think animals would get better treatment). It felt like it was an interrigation. Anyway good luck to anyone else going to see ATOS.
