TOPIC: Fibro/ME - Support Group

Fibro/ME - Support Group 6 years 2 months ago #65218

Hi
Just wondering how many Fibro/ME sufferers that use this forum have been placed in the support group? A, with no medical, B, after a medical or C after appeal, and for which descriptors were they awarded the required 15 points?
As a fellow sufferer, and at present in the process of TRYING to complete the ESA Questionaire, it would be very interesting and helpful to hear about others' experiences.
Best wishes to you all
Twinkle

Hi Twinkle

I have both ME/Fibro plus a few other exciting things going on!
I have filled in and returned ESA50(being moved from IB) which was mentally/physically draining and demoralising when you see your health problems there in front of you in black and white.
ATOS have kindly invited me to an assessement next week.so will have to wait and see outcome. My fate is in their hands.

I have fibro and CFS and a couple of other conditions as well.

I was initially placed in the WRAG group without a medical but after an appeal I have been placed in the support group.

Molly- I have Fibromyalgia and me and have been placed in the WRAG - can you tell me ( if it's not too private) on which descriptor you were placed in to the Support Group? I am not sure on which grounds to appeal so any advice would be appreciated .

The thread has been locked because the purpose of the forum does not permit the plagarising of another member's form completion according to their circumstances, in order to try and qualify for the support group.

Member's should complete any documentation relating to the WCA from their own personal circumstances, and not by deriving information and using the circumstances of other members.
