  1. Sorry posted twice by mistake
  2. Hi everyone, Thankyou so much for all of your reply's to my last posts. I have come back to tell you that I had my Home visit on Thursday the 7th just gone. The "Doctor" called to say he would be 30 minutes late,and ended up being 1 hour and 7 minutes late.I had to go downstairs to my living room and by the time he arrived I was most uncomfortable. It did'nt seem to be the same as my 1st home visit,it was shorter and different questions,more focused (if thats poss) on just what I can do and when I last done it... I just have to wait for the outcome now.Does anyone know how long I should give it before requesting a copy of the assesement,and where I have to ring to get ask? I cant remember since the 1st time. I wouls also like to tell you,that due to your replys ect,I did contact my MP, I did have a reply from Mr Grayling, I replied to that letter to ask if they dont take into account your own GP's and Consultants opinions why then do they ask for your medical records and corrected him on my diagonosed conditions..he kept refferring to ME (but to look like he knew something about it,he called it by the very long full name ) which he promptly told me can change !! How many people does he know with M.E.Of all the people I've met,and there has been a fair few,none have ever got that much better,you have a few hours change and Crash.. but my Diagnosis was actually Fibromyalgia/ME,and I told him according to the National Fibromyalgia Association there was up until this point in time NO CURE for Fibromyalgia,unless "he" knew otherwise,and if he did the N.F.A and thousands of other unfortunate people that suffer from it would be greatly indeubted to him. We all Pray for the day that someone finds 1- a cause but 2- more importantly a cure.. He replied back...guff guff a paragraph saying " Entitlement itself does not depend on the condition itself_as most conditions like CFS/ME and Fibro have a range of associated funtional impairment- but on the disabling effects of the condition(s) present and their impact on work related activities for Employment and support allowance" ???? He also said "that GP's and Consultants are not usually experts in assessing the functional effects of a persons condition or disability.They are trained in in diagnosis and treatment rather than disability assessment" There is no-one on this planet who understands how these conditions disabilatate (sp) me more so than my Consultant,who is THE top man in this country on my conditions. I tryed to tell my ATOS Dr how I had had to cancel a Dentist appointment to have a tooth removed that keeps on having an abcess under 3 times to date,because I have just not had the energy to get there,thoe this tooth is very painful.But he seemed to dismiss that,but he would do would'nt he.That might come in handy if I have to go through an appeal.I feel I might have,but I wonder how I'm going to.I cant fight,I'm too sick to fight.But I will have to wait and see.. Thanks again,
  3. Thankyou SpeedFreak !! Ummm,sorry but can you please tell me what ESA50 is ? Will I find it here somewhere? Thankyou
  4. Oh !! Rae,just wanted to say I have updated,but I dont know where abouts it is here,I havent really found my way round. I have now heard I am to have a Home visit and I have written to my local MP,heard back originally,but not since,still waiting. I am just dreading this visit,I am stressed that my hair has started to fall out But have to carry on,I have no choice, Thankyou to everyone who replied,
  5. Thankyou Jsa,HoneyBee and Speedfreak (am I in the right place in the Forum?) Well,I think I will definately tape it as the First Medical I had home,I requested it after and at least half of it bore no resemblance to what I had actually said,they were'nt my words at all. I would like to know if what they write down should be what I say or what they think ??? And I would still like any advice/tips for the actual Day? Its scaring me silly. Many Thanks,
  6. Hi, I dont know if I am in the right place again,I cant seem to find my way round this site very easily,sorry. But I wanted to update the nice folk that replied to my last Thread about DWP/ATOS. I have now had confirmation that my ATOS medical assesement will take place at home.Thats after a few of you told me it would as my 1st one had been conducted at home but ATOS did'nt tell me that and continued to stress me me out so much that my hair has now started to fall out I have been advised that I should record the interview in my home,can anyone tell me if this is legal,if I should tell the visiting Doctor or not? And does anyone else have any advice for me please ? I am a living wreck at present and it has made my health conditions even worse than they are usually. As I said in my last thread this is all for my National Insurance Stamp,as I was told I was'nt entitled to any other benefit as my Husband works full time.I would really like to know how much a Married Womans National Insurance Stamp is? if anyone knows. I cant believe they would go to all this trouble after being under a Professor that says I will never work again and to remove such thoughts from my head ! And is it true that they do NOT take into account your own GP's or Consultants opinions? Many Thanks...
  7. I cant believe the responce's,thankyou ALL so much,I would click my heels (LONERANGER) If I had the energy !! Thankyou for riding ! in with more advice for me. I will have to read your links,have to do so slowly as it takes me time to take it in,due to my conditions. And many thanks to you Rae and SpeedFreak.. I'm so glad I found you all, Galido
  8. Sorry,I meant to ask one question,can someone please tell me,how their Doctor/Body can over rule an individuals own GP and Professor ? As I am under a Proffessor of Imunology who is the top Dog in the field.I am lucky enough to be under his care.It was due to his letter to DLA that I got awarded 3 years ?? Its so confusing.
  9. Oh !! my gosh..Thankyou to everyone who has replied,I really am over whelmed and actually feel I'm no longer alone,as I had felt before 5am this morning when I was still laying awake worrying about all this. I get very confused and forgetful due to my conditions,find phone calls soooo tiring,that after 2 minutes my mind just goes to mush. Speedfreak ,you asked,they havene yet told me no home medical,BUT I feel its been left in the air as I sent my Doctors letter back to them with their appointment,they have confirmed they have recieved it but tell me "their" Doctor has to agree it and give it the go ahead,but if I dont hear back from them that I MUST ATTEND the 2nd appointment they have sent me for the 21st !! I told the shirty woman I spoke to Atos,that I had sent the letter from Dr backing a home visit,he and my Proff are behind me 101%,and that I would not be attending as I was unable,and told her to please make a note of that on her screen. I do not recieve any benefits as such from Social security (or whatever it is called these days) as my Husband works full time and I am a part time job for him also !! All of this with them is so that my national insurance stamp will be paid toward my pension.. It seems a hellobello for just that. Many Thanks to the Lone Ranger,what kind people you all are. Debt4get,thankyou also.But I am not on any benefits,its just for my stamp. I went almost 4 years before I diagnosed,and during that time my stamp was'nt paid which is really going to effect my pension,which is another worry. ATOS and DWP have literally made me sicker than I usually am,I am just sooo tired and feel like telling them to just forget it and face things later on when I reach pension age.I was once a feisty person but my conditions dont allow me,I have no energy to exert anymore. Sorry to babble on,but I feel so relieved to have found a place where others are in the same boat,thoe of course I wish none of us were.. Love and light to you all
  10. Thankyou Rae, and Thankyou Micko19.Subject Acess Request,never heard of it,never would have known,thankyou so much.The other link Grievance,I am just off to read.And I havent ever had any dealings with my local MP's ect,would'nt have thought I could contact them over such a matter,but I may just pluck up the courage and energy to do this. Kind regards
  11. Please excuse me if I am in the wrong place (again) only found this site last night,only found out that there were lots of other people going through the pain and suffering at the hands of the DWP/ATOS. Hi, I am confused,distressed and have become increasinly depressed by the DWP and ATOS.They just seem like Bullies to my,who are wasting my time,their time and my GP’S. I had to give up work in 2004 due to increasinly bad health.I claimed nothing as I did’nt even have a proper Diagnosis.It took me almost 4 years to get one.I was diagnosed,after many tests with a condition called Fibromyalgia/Me (chronic fatigue) My condition has continued to deteriate.I started to receive Disabilty allowance 2 years ago,and have just been awarded this for a further 3 years,due to the letter my Proffessor wrote to them.He is the top man in my condition and says I will never work again,as my condition will never really improve only get worse and stress is so bad for me and these people continue to harass me and make me sicker.I had a home visit from Atos,and there Dr stated in his opinion I would be fit to resume work in 6 months !!! I now have them on my back again,countless worrying letters.I have had to get another letter just recently from my GP,who throughly backs me to state I will need a home visit again,I practically home bound because of my health. I actually spoke to Atos today !! about another appointment that they had sent me AFTER receiving my Doctors letter.They told me “their” Dr was looking in to it and I would get an answer shortly,if not I must attend !!! I dont undertand how they operate.I am under the my GP and a Professor of imunology who both agree I am unfit to work ??? yet they keep the pressure on even thoe my GP has told them that this all aids to making my health worse.I feel they are sending me mad,and I dont feel I have anywhere to turn to,and there is nothing I can do about it.. Can anyone here advise me pleaseeee Gabby
