been writing my appeal, been doing it for 3 days now and ive got 9 pages so far.

ive really layed into them about how the one report contradicts the other, it really isnt right how theyve done this.

the report states that i am able to climb onto a bed, bend my knees perfectly without severe discomfort - how is that possible when there wasnt even a bed in the exam room?

Hiya :)
They are a lot of fibbers :x (for want of a much stronger word) They did the same to me in 2007 & it led to my money stopping.
I appealed & thankfully won. It takes it out of you though doesn't it. The main issue that causes me so many worries over this, is that these people have the power to take you from surviving to being on the breadline.
I get so stressed & upset when the IB50's come & over the Charade they call a medical. I've got mine tomorrow. Got a lady this year. I had C.A.B. help with my forms too. I tell you what, the people there are worth their weight in gold :wine:
Every year I am given a report from atos stating that I'll be cured in 6mths. I know this because the jobcentre lady told me. I've been diagnosed with depression since 1995 & been unable to work since 2006.

I think I should be cured by now then
:crazy: :lol: :?

The whole system is shot to bits isn't it. It's so unfair that these so-called 'doctors' can decide our immediate futures for us when they only speak to us for around 20 mins under the most idiotic circumstances they a call a 'medical'. Then to add insult to FM injury, they insult our intelligence by saying "the final decision isn't made by me, I don't have the final say......blah blah blah...."
How do the DWP make their decisions then.....????? ON YOUR INFORMATION that's how. So yes you do have the final say actually..... :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
They don't know us, our families or see how everything has been turned upside down by FM :facepalm:


My goodness I've had a rage :oops:
So sorry.
All the best with your appeal, deathvalleydemon :goodluck1: :fingerscrossed: :goodluck1: :fingerscrossed: :goodluck1:
Hope everything goes your way.
Madder than usual..... Mel70

thats so true!!!!

out of interest, you gotta go to the birmingham MEC? and youre seeing a woman? if her name is JOANNE AYRES she will lie through her teeth on her report. she did mine. so much vital information was missing from mine, i told her that i am unable to go out alone because my legs without warning just give way from underneath me, and this happened when i was attending for an x-ray, i fell in the road, smashed my face off a gutter, blacked both my eyes (i still have them now) and broke my nose, yet this information is missing from her report, and that made the DWP decide that i was able to out alone to a familiar place in safety.

i told that my knees are so bad that i have to sleep downstairs and keep a bucket for the toilet during the night, yet again this info is absent from her report.

i told her that there is a post box right outside my house and i walked to it, its less than 50 yards there and back and after that i was in crippling pain and spent the day dosed up asleep recovering, yet this is absent from her report.

its claimed that i lay on a bed and bent both knees absolutely fine, when at no point in the time i was in there was i asked to lie on a bed. i suffer so bad with my knees, ankles and feet, yet at no point was i asked to take off my shoes, she never even touched me with her hands so how can that be deemed a medical?

it really is a joke.

OMG - I sent back my ESA Medical forms last week and got a call today asking if I could attend a medical next Tuesday. From what I have read I am dreading it......

I am self employed and work with children, I gave up in July as I just couldn't do it anymore as I couldn't get up off the floor and the pain in my arms was terrible along with the fatigue.

I only claimed ESA about 3 weeks ago as I didn't know I could claim but have been paid my first lot of money and now I have my medical, got I am really scared..

Are there any good stories out there... my partner is coming with me as I can't drive far as my left foot goes numb and my vision is really bad! He said if they treat me badly they are getting a right mouthful (but not too much as I don't want it to go badly)!

:cry:
