I was on Incapacity Benefit for ages since 97.

Went to all of the medicals for that and they said I could not work due to depression. This has now changed and I have more illnessess.

Since then I have gone from IB to ESA first Cont Based now Income Based.


What I would like to know is


How many times do you need to see an advisor. I have been approx 10 now.

I see the same one everytime.

It seems to me that she is trying to push me back into work. She even tried to get me to go on training courses for plumbing etc.,

When she new full well that that would be impossible for me to do.

I have various illnesses COPD, Osteo Arthritis in both hips and hands, Raynauds plus carpol tunnel.

I have letters from hospital and drs. which she has seen.

I am due to be reassed with a new form to fill out in Oct 14.

She is now trying to get me to do a course in IT and Retail.

Do I have to go on these courses?

Please bare in mind with the medication I am on by the time 12pm comes I am very tired and most of these courses are all day.

I cannot switch times of my medication as some are slow release and need the time space. Please I would be in so much pain I would not be able to move.

Any advice on what I should do?

I am due to see her again on the 11th June 2014.

I am limited to the amount of time I can type etc., because of medical conditions.

Use to stick to help walk and also splints on hands.

I said to her it is going to be hard for me to actually hold down a job, because of medical conditions and hosp appts. plus some mornings I cannot get out of bed because of pain.

She said we have to be seen to be doing something.

Any suggestions what to do.

I feel as if I am being pressured into something that may be impossible for me.

Thank you for reading this.

Forgot to add I have been seeing the Advisor for ESA since last Jan 2013.

I also have 10 Medications on my prescription every month.

Is it best to just wait it out until it is reassessed with another form in October?

I am also waiting to see a Hip Surgeon.
