    Hey Toby

    i love your name, ive always liked the name toby i wanted to call my dog toby but mum wouldnt let me cause she was a bitch lol,

    anyway im sorry to hear about your financial situation, its a pian in the neck with the country in ressesion too :twisted:

    So ive applied for ESA employment and support allowence i hope i get approved but i wont be disheartned if i dont coz i know it takes a long time to process, there is 2 catorgories in this process one is where you are fit for work and they help you with getting you back etc, and the other one is npot fit for work at this point, im hoping i fall into that catogory for now, they ask alot of questions over the phone for this then send you out a wish list for info they need, im getting mine sorted on monday then sending it out,

    i would advise you to try this, its changed names from incapicity benefit to ESA and everything goes via jobcentre plus now, have a look on their web page for more info, i was working full time then went sick for 4 months went back part time and financially could afford to be at work!

    hope you get summin sorted soon Toby

    peace
    ISDM

    Hello all,
    Could someone please answer my question, the ESA have just phoned me and strangly asking me questions already?? they want to get my claim processed as quick as possible, so that my money can be paid into my account shortly, ive just gotta get a drs certificate for 6 months tmrw, which i will do when i go to the drs tmrw, they said to me i see your very poorly as you are on chemotherapy! i did say yes to that question and although im on a low dose of it METHOTREXATE is still classed as CHEMOTHERAPY, but will be going up to top dose on monday.

    My question is was i right in saying that to them? or are they more intrested in the more serverre cases of lupus and chemotherapy? im not lying to them i am taking it, i just dont want to get anything wrong in my claim :?

    please someone help me

    much love
    IDSM

    Default Still waiting

    Good afternoon all,

    Some of you have asked how long the process takes, for me it has been two and a half years of waiting. I applied in September of 2006 when my disease started to take over my body. I was denied three times and have gone before the judge once in Nov. of 2008 and I have still heard nothing. The denial excuse was due to my age I was 26 when I applied after having the disease for over 5 years at that point. I wish you all the best luck and hope that your wait will not be as long as mine was and is.

    Default hi

    Hi All,

    ISDM....Check about the DLA..dissability living allowance. Im not sure about our benefit system, but i know you should be on that.No harm in checking.You fill out the form,send it back then a decision is made on your illness.You have allot of symptoms so you should get it, but im not 100% sure. They contact your doctors you see. Even if its 10 a week, every little helps.

    Love
    Angel.xxx
