congrats on your appeal it should never had went as far as it did.

 

With my disabilities you would think a government run buisness I worked for would do all they can to get you back to work. The government department I worked for was more on the lines of trying to fire me than to help, they eventualy got there way but I faught hard but eventualy the best result I could get was medically retired.

 

Just goes to show the government likes to take credit with statistics about helpin disabled people but under another breath they do everything they can to hinder us.

We were lucky as it has been backdated to when it stopped, and I have also contacted the Carer's allowance folk and due it it continuing from when it stopped I can also get my CA backdated to then as well.

Right here is what happened.

 

We gets a call in the morning asking us to change the time as there had been a cancellation, so off we toodles to the tribunal. We meet the Welfare Officer and had a chat, and we went into the panel.

 

Now remember my son has no self confidence and very painfully shy.

 

They started asking him questions, and he felt very uncomfortable, until the chair says to the other 2 that this was upsetting my son, and would it be ok it they asked ME what was going on.

 

So I told them the whole story and how my son copes(or doesnt cope) wiht his condition, and the doc asks about his drugs so I told him what immunosuppressants he was on, to which he was totally shocked!!

 

5 more minutes of things, and they went through the ESA medical and they realised that it was GARBAGE :D

 

They then asked my son and the Welfare officer to leave, and had a quick word with me, to which they asked what the prognosis was, and I told them Lifelong and about how now he may have crohns as well.

 

The chair said that she didnt want to ask in front of our son as it wouldnt do him any good. She then asked how he used to be, to which I told them a very active person who swam, went flying and was in the ATC. She shook her head and said, what a great mother you have been, and hope things start to go in his favour. One of the other panel was actually near in tears as I told them about how he was treated at school and how I would rather get a phone call at 3am from him in town saying he couldnt get a taxi home, than him calling me due to pain!!

 

The doctor then asked me why was I even here, as with his condition it is supposed to be a straight forward renewal.

 

I left and 5 minutes later we gets the results.

 

UNANIMOUS

 

Higher Mobility and middle Care from 4/10/09 to 3/10/13!!

Aww hunni, thankyou for telling us how it went. That was so nice to read. That's the way a Tribunal should be - Interested, Caring, Humane.

I am so happy for you both. Not ashamed to tell you that I'm crying, but with absolute happiness. So happy! :)

Much love

Rae.

Thanks hunni, I will admit I was in tears too when telling the panel about him without him being there, and one of them said it must be heartbreaking to see your child like that regardless of the age of them.

 

My advice to anyone is that if it goes to tribunal, just let them see how things are, do not be afraid to tell the panel of anything that affects you.

 

contact your MP/MSP, and def get someone from CAB or Welfare Benefits, although I will admit our Welfare beneifts advisor didnt even have to say or utter a word today, he was there more for moral support than anything else :D

 

So its off to bed for me, my week long headache is actually going and I think I need to sleep for a week.

Your win means so much to me. Having lost my own appeal and being forced to go back to step one it re-affirms my faith in people. Clearly each Tribunal is individual.

It is all about honesty, faith and hope.

Where I failed, you succeeded. That's not a judgement call. Thems the breaks. And I am so happy! :)

Best wishes

Rae

YAY!!!!!

 

It is actually very hard to write in the dialect that I talk in, and when I talk online to all my friends from my home town and they write as they talk they call me a snob LOL

I have to admit I love language and dialect. What I couldn't get was 'sair fecht' but now you translate it as 'sore fight' I can see that. The problem was I couldn't 'hear' it in my mind.

Although I have spent the majority of my life in Devon and Dorset I was born in Cumberland [Cumbria still doesn't exist in my lexicon]. And the northern brogue there was not too far removed. I was always a 'bairn'...

My username 'kelcou' is the early French name which became the Scottish 'Kelso' with all it's inherent attributes. My maternal Grandmothers name, hence my ancestry.

Best wishes

Congratulations from me too, maz. I've had internet problems and am borrowing someone else's at the moment.

 

I hope your son is proud of how you've fought for him. You both deserve this.
