    Buster, well done for taking the initiative and buggering off to the coast.
    I must admit I was a little worried for the both of you when reading your post as I know how this sort of thing can affect you.

    I was also in this position. I won't bore you with all the minor details, but had the assessment. Even though I had to be chaperoned there and was extremely nervous and agitated during the interview.
    I also received a letter to say I was fit for work.
    For one thing, I couldn't go out alone with my monophobia and was practically a hermit for most of the time.

    Anyway, during the assessment, which was done by a nurse, not someone who I thought was qualified to assess me in half an hour and led me to believe that everything was going to be fine for me and in fact it was not!
    So I wrote a letter and copied it to my GP, who was behind me 100%.
    Get you GP to write a letter for you, you may have to pay a small fee, but it is worth it.
    The more back up you can get the better.
    Even letters from neighbours and family members.
    Things can be worked out and even if they have stopped your money, you have to be entitled to some support.
    If your partner is out of work at present, she has to receive support anyway.

    It's the weekend, so chill out for now and make the most of the sea air.

    Had a Neil kinnock moment on the beach today as in a wave snuck up behind me and I got soaked but my partner absolutely pis&ed herself so no all bad took one for the team .
    As I sat on the edge of the prom drying my trousers and trainers I noticed two blokes stood at the edge of the sea about a hundred yards apart both just staring out to sea , one a biker in full black leathers boots and helmet under his arm , the other in a mod Parker , both middle aged it was more Quadraphenia than baywatch but I did sit and wonder what they were thinking and why we do it just looking out to sea like it has the answers .
    Wish I could just stay here but need to go back to reality and sort the shite out back home .
    Going to a carboot in the morning if I find a Ming dynasty vase I'll probably stay the week
    Thanks buoys and gulls

    Thanks carnation, I did think about letters from my daughters to say she doesn't have freinds to socialise with and that's a good idea to show the letter they sent to her Gp and psychiatrist, they had to come to her for the assessment had they came a few weeks ago she had pneumonia, I think their idea like others have said is just fail everyone and see who appeals , guilty until proven innocent.
    Take care

    Mods & Bikers standing together looking out to see? Probably thinking of the old days when they were young and were booting the crap out of each other by the sea!

    Glad you had a good day and cheering Mrs B up! Watch out for Jaws next time!!!

    I bet doctors are sick to death of these assessments. It must grate on them that they spend years assessing & monitoring for someone far less qualified to say they are wrong in a 30 minute session.

    Re: Up sh@t creak

    There were a few minging things but not what I had in mind so I guess it's back to the worry factory in the morning .
    Bought a pad today to make a start on the letter to Dwp , I was struggling for inspiration so I thought what would Magic say ?
    Dear pri@k or sh!t head , I sincerely wish I could bestow the gift of anxiety and or depression on you for one week so your tiny uncaring brain could feel the utter despair and give an insight into our daily struggle , you cu@t !
    I might have to work on it before sending
    Spoke to an old lady today parked up at the beach , she said she drives there most days and just sits and watches the sea , she lives alone and probably likes a bit of conversation, she looked very calm and content unlike most people these days .
    Anyway dogs have just had their last walk of the day and it's now absolutely pis£ing it down .Ill let you guys know how it goes with the Dwp , as a last resort I suppose I could apply for a job as a Dwp assessor I was once a Doctor of lager although that might make me over qualified.
    Take care .

    Oh Buster, I've only just come upon this thread, really sorry I would have written on it sooner had I have seen it. Anyway, as I'm late the rather crap party (I'll pass on a party bag if you are giving them out, not sure what you might put in it in your current frame of mind lol), I can see that more knowledgeable people than myself have given great advice.

    You did the perfect thing driving to the coast and having some time out. What a complete pile of utter rubbish has been chucked your way, and its so unfair. So glad you are doing the appeal jobby

    You make me laugh Buster, but you have to get in these people's heads! You also have to point out their liabilities for their decisions. Point out that your partner was made to feel nervous and uncomfortable. You know the sort of stuff. It's not lies, it's the truth!!!!

    Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

    Mental health is an easy target for these people, it's just something they don't understand! I just wish you could give it to these people for just a moment of their life, then they might just understand!

    Good Luck Buster!!

    Re: Up sh@t creak

    You know, that does sound like Magic

    You probably made that old ladies day, Buster...she might have thought she had pulled a toy boy

    I agree with Carnation, lay it bare. No, holding back in a very British way, lay it out how their decision affects you all.
