Mandatory recounts- put in WRAG group
Hi I been in support group for some years now. But recently went to a medical. And was told I would be put in work related activities group. Despite being told that I be a risk to myself or others if I would ever been deemed able to work etc. They think it's ok for me to be in this group. I don't honestly see the point in any of it. I keep myself to myself. I don't even like going to see the GP. Let alone being force to attend these meetings. I got a letter from my doctors and I am sort of getting help with this by a (drop in) support worker. I been diagonised with most mental health issues some I can't even spell so not going to try to. I hate formal stuff so not looking forward to if the mandatory recount fails. I worry if having this forced upon me that I will go backwards. Instead of forwards. I just want the world to leave me alone I don't have much to do with society's. In the past I have got a history of violence. I was classed by the medical profession as violent and unpredictable. But having this all thrown at me. When I jus want a quietish life. I said to my gp that I don't really get on with people it's easier I know my limits. So so not looking forward to any of it as in the past it never has or never will run smooth
