I received the form last week but couldn't face it. It is due on 14th, so I decided to do it a bit at a time. First I have to sort out the mass of medical history and past IB forms, etc. Sorry, waffling. I downloaded the form and typed up answers to some of the questions after going on this forum once I got the Phone Call. Now I see that the space for doctor provides for anyone except my gp. It also doesn't allow for more than one condition and more than one doctor I have epilepsy. The last time I saw a consultant was a few years ago when a brain scan revealed a little lump on my brain. I refused to have it removed, given the small chance of success vs greater chance I'd be worse. I was discharged from the hospital and my medication is monitored by my gp. Now, if I fill in this Professor's name, the one who saw me years ago, he will no doubt not know me from the woman in the moon. Recently I saw a consultant with regard to my spine problems. He knows that particular condition very well, since he did a lumbar steroid procedure last week. But he can't attest to my epilepsy Last year I saw a therapist with regard to my mental health issues but ran out of my allocated number of sessions and had to go back on the waiting list for another cycle. Which of these do I use? I am tempted to put my GP and then add an additional page with the details of the other people, including the consultant who hasn't seen me for my epilepsy in years. My epilepsy was the main reason I won my appeal last time ATOS tried to remove my IB, so I think this is my main condition to use? Or should I cite them all? Last but not least, I have now done the physical section of the form, repeating exactly what I told the tribunal last time. They awarded me 15 points for the epilepsy and 6 for the musculo-skeletal problems. The mental health issues were not considered serious enough for enough points to meet the minumum standard. So, should I disregard the mental health issues or still raise them, since they still exist? I had a very bad bout and had to be medicated again a few months ago, and am currently dangerously on the brink of the black hole again. Or should I just do the physical? CAn anyone help me fill out the mental health side?
