dazed and confused!

Postby janni62 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 3:06 pm

Never tried posting before, be gentle with me! I am 49 and live in beautiful Cornwall.
I have 3 grown up children and a small selection of grandkids, all boys..
I live on my own now, well sort of, have 2 lovely cats and few fish.
I have had fibro for 10 years along with other unpleasant chronic illnesses including menieres disease and a life long problem with depression and panic.

Well I'm not alone in waiting in absolute dread for my medical interrogation which is tomorrow.
I had a very bad experience if these so called medicals a few years ago when my benefits were stopped and I had to appeal. I did get my entitlement back but honestly it left me so traumatized that when I was called again a few years later I burst into tears and was sent home.

I have a stutter which is worse when I am nervous or upset and I'm dreading having questions fired at me, all of which are designed simply to strip me of my entitlement to esa.
I have waited since dec 2010 for my medical to be arranged, trying to survive on £67.50 and £19.95 dla. So much for the 12 week assessment phase...
Quite funny when incontinence products alone come to £11.00 a week at least!!
Anyway I am starting to ramble here, oh fibro fog I love you! :needhug:
