Omg had my f2f interview today lasted 1 hour 10 mins , I must say I was a wreck I tried to explain in between the tears and my son helping out how my life is like explaining that why I can't cook etc and walk only a certain distance before the pain starts , my only worry is she asked why I wore glasses and my son told them I only wore them just to look at newspaper articles etc , i hope he hasn't done me any damage , she introduced herself but we never got to see any evidence what she had or mentioned what she had is this normal ?
Then she made me do a physical but honestly i,don't think she had aclue about my illness or how it affects me I told her I had been to my neurologist 4 weeks ago had 2 X-rays then onto pyshio and then now a pain clinic . Then she emptied 8 medicines out and took note of them , to be honest I don't know if these people are just so trained not to react when I was having a total breakdown weeping uncontrollably and my son cuddling me and pulling the tissues out for me . They have a neurologist letter a psychiatrist letter and my doctors letter and letters from family and my son who's my registered carer and my interview was 1.10 mins long it was torture not to say horrendous on my nerves but good luck to everyone else I'm just anxious.
She told us at the end you'll get a decision in 8 weeks approx omg agony now of waiting ☹️
