Thank you Gordon I did get into the support group because for my appeal I asked my doctor to help and I do believe that only for the letter explaining a condition I had as one of the Exceptional criteria I dont think I would have achieved this .I am filling the whole form in as I know that the DWP treat you as a new case each time so I can only say how I am now,and that my conditions are on going.I feel deflated as it has been a struggle to get this far,after the worry of only 6mths ago when I had to have an extra blood pressure tab, which has affected my liver slightly as I was already on 2 tabs now its 3 through the stress.I have got this far and aam worried I WONT DO EVERYTHING RIGHT THIS TIME. and all will be lost.

Your GP was kind enough to help last time, so I would start by speaking to them about this latest assessment, they may well be willing to write another letter for you. Whilst it might not be what you want in an award, your original claim was good enough to get you into the WRAG, so with everything you have learned along the way, you should have a better chance this time of being put back into the SG.

If you have any questions then come back to the forum and we will do our best to help.
