TOPIC: First post

First post 3 years 5 months ago #114856

Hello to everyone

From IB to ESA, placed in the support group, prognosis 3 years.

I provided medical evidence and did my best to convey honestly how my illness affects me. I was placed in the support group, sans medical.

The site has been invaluable and helped me to both understand the horribly complicated benefit structure (kind of) and to organise information so that I could accurately convey how my life is affected by my condition.

Thank you very much and Happy Christmas.

I can't speak for Alax but judging by the fact he said he didn't have to go to a medical I assume he didn't have to appeal.
