    The Tories sheer gall & hypocrisy knows NO bounds

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I’m unsure how to get onto your forum (if you have one please can you send a link to my email?

    Dwp sent me a dla to pip letter and said I had to ring if I wanted to claim pip. I did this and got a form a few weeks before Christmas. Dwp said send it in by 1 January but I knew that was a con. I scribbled in it quickly and sent a few doctors letters in with the form.

    I had a letter arrive a few days ago saying I had an medical 40 miles away at some stupid time.

    I rang dwp and told them I’d be coming covered in blood. Unless they wanted to check my reaction and planned to change location anyways, my rant must of bothered them a little bit because they said would assess me on paper or at a centre closer to me.

    Unfortunately they called again and said I had to come to a centre ten miles away.

    Well all I can say is…if I go I am likely to be going in a mess and in a bad mood. I may or may not self harm. All I know for sure is they don’t care.

    I’ve got no gp at the moment either. I was basically being abused by the neighbour from hell until just before Christmas. He kept me awake all night and stalked me throughout the day. My doctor wrote to council and after a long fight I was moved.

    I haven’t left my new home in a month. Well OK not strictly true..I’ve been picked up by my dad and spent a few hours at my parents house. I rarely go out due to agoraphobia and anxiety anyway. Dla payments helped with taxi fare so I could go to parents once in a while. It also helps with home comforts like Internet and maybe a uk holiday once in a blue moon. Other than that I don’t go anywhere. I struggle to speak to people and left school aged 12 due to nerves. The times I did go out on a bus I went from my house to my parents. Even then I close my eyes most of the journey. I’ve been told to get to my parents now I’ve moved, I need to get on one bus, get off a few stops later, cross the road, get on another bus. I can’t bring myself to attempt that because I reckon I’ll get lost. I don’t know why but I have no sense of direction. In 2015 I was hit by a car and got a haematoma on my knee. That was partly to do with poor sense of direction. And possibly because I’m unaware of danger. I know sometimes in the past Ive been out and ended up covered in blood or drunk and nearly dead. I don’t drink often, but if I do its at times like this!! And I normally end up in trouble. I’ve only been held by police once under mental health act. I was released shortly after sobering up. I’ve asked a million doctors to see a shrink but it’s never happened. My gp was good for a letter and moral support, but not so good with referrals. I’m sure half the reason we have so many people with mental health issues is the fact doctors try drugs but rarely try sending people to a shrink. Perhaps earlier intervention would stop some peoples mental health going totally down hill.

    Anyhow my now ex gp called me to say atos rang him to say I’d had a meltdown. I don’t think he spoke to them because he told me he tried to ring ATOS back about my health being particularly bad due to neighbour from hell and a sudden move. It seems they decided not to answer his phone call and instead sent him a letter that won’t reach him til after the medical.

    I’m not sure what to do because I don’t have any support? The government don’t give a sh*t so any advice would be appreciated…thanks in advance..Cheers
