  1. Dear Cagger's, I need your advice/guidance, as i am very mythed at todays "interview". I was struck off ESA at beg Sept, after scoring zero points and declared 'fit for work' after an atos assessment. I have been advised to appeal under numerous points, one being the assessor falsely claiming she physically examined me, this is untrue. Also, stating that i showed no signs of respiratory or muscle wasting disease. I have never claimed to have had any of those illnesses and have a feeling my case was mixed up with another person. I have until 7th Oct to appeal this but have decided to apply for UC instead, as appealing will exhaust me, i just dont have the mental energy to do this. Moving forward, i applied for UC and today had my first interview to commit to work and in order to get my initial payment processed. I produced a "fit for work statement", stating i am not fit for work for three months, due to inflammatory artheritis in most of my joints. My GP made this decision based on my rheumatology/specialist records. The JC advisor informs me that 'its not worth the paper its written on' and i must seek employment or atleast 'prepare' for employment, maybe attend a college course or work maybe 5-10 hours per week, to show my 'commitment'.He said there is no way i will be 'left alone' for one month, let alone 3 months! I was baffled! If i can attend college then i am capable of working,surely? My GP has certified me unable to work, but the advisor is ignoring this and stating i can work with 'limitations'. Please, can someone advise me what i can do? I am so scared that i am going to be sanctioned (rent then is unpaid, and i get evicted), or force myself (not sure how!) into a job and get the sack immediately or even make my condition worst. My rheumatologist is working so hard to get my inflammation under control, to then give me a fighting chance to get my life back in the working world, albeit, part-time to start with and build up.
