Hi. I have today been placed in the ESA support group for the second time
And am receiving higher rates mobility lower rate care DLA. I have had to fight
for this but finally got there. If you are appealing keep going and if your not
sure if you can claim go for it hopefully they are starting to believe
that fibro is real and disabing. Good luck to you all xxxxxx :-D :-D :-D

Congratulations! It's good to know it's happening out there for some of us.
Diagnosed and retired by work due to ill-health 16 yrs ago, I am on DLA high mobility, low care and recently I was put into the work-related activity group without assessment. I appealed to go into the support group but my GP doesn't do reports for any of her patients so had no up to date evidence to show and lost the appeal. They have now stopped my ESA completely and will only pay my nat.Ins. stamp as they say my pension and my lodgers rent is enough to live on (it's not) they didn't even ask what my outgoings were? I have also been told that I don't have to attend any appts. to see a personal advisor because theoretically I'm not even in the work-related group anymore since they stopped the ESA. I have received the appeal hearing notes stating why they refused me and it's full of errors and incorrect assumptions (they didn't even get my welfare rights officers name correct) So I am going to have another go at appealing.
So thank you for sharing your good news, it does give me some hope.
xx :-D

Hi, I have been to the job center today as they wanted to see me and the woman I saw told me to put in for the DLA again for the 4th time as I have got worse even though I told her I have been to 3 appeals and been turned down each time. I took her advice and phoned them to get the ball rolling. I have also been in touch with my local labour MP and told him the problems that we have in claiming any kind of benefits for our problems with this condition. He is wanting to meet me(I live in Essex) and I am wanting to show him this website and the UK Fibromylagia website page so he can see for himself exactly what comments are being made on how we suffer and the comments made by people who have been turned down. I think my main goal on this is to fight for our own human rights and what we should be entitled to suffering from this condition so I will keep everyone posted on my progress.
