I'm all wired up now and feel stupid:mad:.

 

Will do as I am told though and fill in the diary I have been given to tell them any point of the day I don't feel right.:confused:

 

 

At this moment in time, that is all the time, all the day:confused:

And thank you (one and all) for your support.

 

I beleive the appeal can last 7-9 months and I am sorry, but at this moment in time, I can't be bothered.

 

A good nights sleep (if that's possible with this thing stuck to me) may be all I need. Because I aint had a proper sleep since I first went to ATOS.

 

For the sake of my sanity and other peeps on this site. I will do my best and battle through to win. That way, I can show people that it can (and will) be done.

 

God bless you all, you are all God sends (even you atheists out there;)).

Hi folks, a quick update.

 

I have received a letter from JSP which reads:-

 

Dear SOD'EM

About your appeal

 

I am writing about your letter dated (**-**-2010), appealing against a decision on your ESA.

 

We will look at the decision that you have appealed against and, if appropriate, we will revise the decision in your favour. In this case your appeal will lapse and will not be sent to the Tribunal Service. You can appeal against the new/revised decision if you think it is still wrong.

 

If we cannot revise the decision in your favour we will send your appeal letter and papers, giving our reasons and evidence for the decision, to the tribunals service. We will send you a copy of these papers.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

blah, blah, blah.

 

 

Now I class myself as having a reasonable amount of educational skills, but I can't figure out what they are actually saying. The way they have worded the letter means that it can be taken in 2 ways.

 

1. OK, you are now in the appeal process.

2. SOD'OFF SOD'EM:confused:

 

You decide

 

Thanks peeps, feedback muchly appreciated.


 

 

If all else fails, kick them where it hurts and SOD'EM;)

If they sacked all the paper pushers and just paid people what they're entitled to they'd still save money!

Hi, Sod'em. I was a bit confused about appealing a decision revised in your favour too. Maybe they mean if they increase the number of points but you still don't get 15?

 

Plain English would be nice, I agree.

I also received a letter before I appealed stating that I am no longer entitled to ESA (hence the appeal). My usual money however went into my bank on the correct day. I am presuming that they have accepted my appeal and will pay me at the lower rate until the matter gets resolved. I will know on Monday if I get paid again. In the meantime, I will continue to provide Medical Certificates.

 

I just find it hard to understand their latest letter.:confused:

Your best bet is to make an appointment, via your local council, to see a Welfare Rights Officer. Because things are changing so fast with IB etc. my knowledge now is way out of date :|

The letter you got basically says that they have accepted the fact that you made a valid appeal and that they will reconsider their original decision and if they revise their decision then your appeal will lapse. This is because

 

a) if they agree with you then you don't need to appeal any more

 

b) if they decide something else then your old appeal won't be relevant anymore and you can make a fresh appeal against the newly revised decision. This might happen for example when you get zero points and think you should be in the Support Group but then they revise their decision and put you into the WRA Group instead.

 

 

If they decide not to revise their decision, then your appeal automatically continues to the Tribunals Service.

Hi all, a long time no speak but I feel it is now time to worry.

 

Had to have a go on the treadmill at the hospital today but that is nothing to do with my appeal.

I have had a letter from the tribunal service to have my case reviewed by an independant panel.

Prior to this (after submitting an appeal) I had been awarded 6 points after getting an initial 0 by

ATOS. Apparently, my appeal will probably not be heard before the 1st December. I went to

my GP's for a routine appointment last Monday and because the appointment was so late in the

day, I broke down in the doctors room. My blood pressure was sky high again and he has upped

my medication again. I have had to insist on day appointments only in future until I am back to normal.

 

The DWP make it look as if you don't want to work or get better and just try to batter you into submission.

I have a short while to gather evidence for my case, but other than a detailed letter supplied by my GP, I can't

really think of anything else that would help. I may feel great by the time I have to face the panel, but as things

are gradually getting worse for me at the moment, I very much doubt it. I would appreciate if anyone could give

me some more support to help my case. If I feel the same as I do now, then if they say I am no longer entitled

to ESA, then I know for a fact I would not be able to go back to JSA. I just couldn't face the ridicule they put

you through every week. I would then have to rely on my father to keep me and he is disabled himself. Chances

are I will just rot away just like the DWP want you to do. That would save them a few shilling.

Enough to make you sick (not that you are well in the 1st place :p:razz:)! You're a tough cookie SOD'EM so I know you're gonna sort them. Keep your chin up and hit 'em where it hurts when the time comes!

 

I hate wishing hard times on people, but if they lived a week in the conditions of any of the people I've read about on CAG I'm sure they'd change their ways!

 

Good luck bud, keep at 'em!

I forgot to say. While I was on the treadmill, they had to stop the test half way through as my BP went to 215 over 140. They then would not let me go home for 2 hours until my BP went back to some sort of normal. My appeal for ESA is nothing to do with my heart problems. I don't even want to go there with that as they would make me go through the whole thing again and apply for ESA again. That would mean being sent back to ATOS again. What fun that would be.

 

ATOS are a bunch of:llama:'s (I couldn't find an ass)

 

 

And they make you feel like you're :deadhorse:.

Phew, what was that song that accompanied him & his party into power - 'Things can only get better'?

 

Whatever happened?

 

I am sorry that you are finding yourself in this situation. The point of this posting is really to let you know that it is highly unlikely that your appeal will be heard by December. I had my medical result / appeal lodged in Jan and a few weeks ago after telephoning for an update, was told that it would be at least March 2011 before it will be heard!!

 

The stress has been enormous and after hearing that unwelcome news I 'politely' told the Tribunal & DWP literally were they could put my appeal!!

 

On JSA now, hoping and praying that a job doesn't come up although I have to go through the motions of applying for them.

Anyhow good luck
