TOPIC: Success - got PIP - OCD :)

Success - got PIP - OCD :) 4 months 3 weeks ago #193662

I think they still do lobotomies, but I doubt they can force it on you. My mate says that a psychiatrist does not have the authority (unless specifically trained) to section you. That has to be done by one of the other mental health workers - an AMP (whatever that is). He said it's highly unlikely that you would be sectioned unless it was for self-neglect. With all the cut-backs it is unlikely, as they will be short of beds. He sounds like he is on a power trip. In any case there is no treatment for OCD. Do let me know how your research goes. Hang in there. :)

Hi, i am really concerned about the future, because regarding ESA I would not be able to go to a Job Centre for interviews. partly due to my OCD and contamination. You said you were like me regarding not being able to attend a Citizens Advice Bureau office. Do you mind me asking if you have the same problem with a job centre and if so, have they allowed telephone interviews?

I am not in the work group for ESA thank goodness. Yes, I have a problem going most places. There is no way I could work - I don't even have a social life to speak of.

Are you in the work group then? I so hope not with OCD. If you cannot get to interviews then you are defo not capable of work.

I'm afraid this is not necessarily the case but of course being in the WRAG means that you are not capable of work.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Hi, I am yet to find out which group I will be in, I have not had the 'medical' yet - I am praying they will do a paper based medical assessment. I have no social life any more, though I still talk to a couple of friends on the phone. OCD is a prison, and so unfair when committed no crime!

I got the ESA on papers alone, so good luck with that.

Yes I agree, it is like a life sentence. You would get less for murder. I rarely meet friends, but like you have phone friendships.

Good luck. Do let me know how you get on.
