I’ve been on disability benefits pretty much all my adult life and have never been to a assessment. I’ve been called for one, pretty much everybody will be assessed for ESA now because here in the U.K. they are implamenting exempt criteria for chronically disabled people meaning they won’t have to be assessed for disability benefits anymore in the future. I want to meet the criteria for exempt statues
In 2016 I was rushed to hospital because I severally cut my armpit trying to take a microchip out from delusions. The air ambulance paramedics came it was so bad. I nearly got kicked out my supported living home (group home for people in the states) My supported living manager is coming with me to my assessment and she’s going to tell them everything. When the assessors ask me my condition I’m going to tell the truth and say I haven’t got anything wrong me with with I think I haven’t, (pdoc says I lack insight) Do you think this is a good idea?
Do you think with the self harm and 11 involuntary hospital admissions and neatly 2 last years if there had been a bed will help my case. They say I have chronic SZA and live in a 24/7 staff group home. i’m so worried about it. Any advice would be very welcome.
