TOPIC: IS to ESA Success!

IS to ESA Success! 4 years 10 months ago #87161

I just wanted to say thanks for the helpful guides you offer. My changeover from IS to ESA recently came up and thanks to those guides and other advice - I have a friend that used to work at CAB - I was placed in the ESA Support Group and did not have to undergo a medical. As someone with multiple medical conditions, both physical and mental health related (in case people find it useful, I have Ehlers-Danlos - Hypermobility Type, Fibromyalgia, Bipolar Disorder - Type II, PTSD, and Anxiety issues), and who has trouble with doctors I don't know, I'm really glad that the advice given allowed me to get past this relatively unscathed.

I hope that many more who still have this fight ahead can use this site to make the transition with ease. :)
