Hi To you all.
I have just joined this forum and it seems like their is a good community of support on here.
I have had MS for 20+ years. I have Opticial problems, severe chronic head pain, muscular and fatigue issues and the other stuff which we mostly know about frustration, depression etc.....
My question is :-
I have my new lovely ESA50 form ( sarcastic ) and I am scared to death by it. I have read many pages of people being completely ignored and treated with utter contempt with regards the assessment of our problems.
Has anyone successfully challenged ATOS, Government, MP over the fact that article A9 & A10 of the DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION ACT 2005 clearly state ( as far as I can see ) that anyone diagnosed with MS, HIV, Cancer should not de challenged as to their ability to work and remain benefits for an unlimited time or until the person deemed themselves fit enough to be able to work?
I have seen this act mentioned on a few forums but I can find no positive results to prove this law his and has been taken seriously. My form is due to go back a 2 weeks and I would like to know if anyone has proven themselves exempt by law by quoting the above?
Kind regards from a stressed out me.
