Assessment Report OMG!
The justification for nearly every descriptor is that I'm not taking medication and I don't have specialist input. So it's reasonable to assume I can do all activities unaided. I have been advised not to pay too much attention to the report as it's an opinion but it says that I said things I didn't say and the decision maker has based his decision almost entirely on the report. It also says 6 pieces of evidence were reviewed but only the 4 documented were used but there is only 3 pieces listed and one of those is described as item 12 Most insulting was her observation that I do not look tired. As I have chronic fatigue syndrome I am fed up with people saying that I would have thought a nurse would have known better! She also noted I was clean and well kempt, does this mean I should have presented to assessment filthy scruffy and smelly? Of course I was clean and tidy, my husband helped me get ready and drove me there. If I was alone it would be a very different picture yet she has not acknowledged in any of the descriptors that without his help I would be much worse.
