Hi, got my F2F on the 24th Jan after being in the support group for the last 6yrs, got a letter today telling me that i've met the criteria required & been placed back into the support group. I must admit this is a weight off my mind.

    How did your assessment go. I know you have the outcome you wanted but overall how did you find it.
    I've got my assessment for ESA soon XX

    The assessor was really nice & i felt she was actually trying to help me. I don't know if i just landed lucky or because of the new Scottish Security System, however i don't think they have the powers for ESA, but it seemed a lot better than some assessments o've had in the past, she also told me at the end of it that she didn't think i would have anything to worry about, hope this helps.

    Wouldn't happen in England, land of rabid DM's and WCA nurses.

    I'm hoping this is the start of the changes our government in Scotland promised us...to be treated fairly & with dignity... and i must admit, that was the way it felt.

    Rights that were fought for by the people of Scotland, if only the people of England had the balls to fight back. The only time the English fight is when someone puts one too many veal calves into a lorry, then you will see them waving banners and screaming blue murder about how cruel it all is.
