it's about 12 years since i last attempted to get these benefits... I had a face to face assesment then, most of which i dont remember... and i scored 0 points, unfortunately i got the results 3 days before becoming homeless so wasn;t in a possition to appeal...

i've been too scared to apply since. So if i am honest I have no idea how all this works now :laugh: my knowledge is all very out of date... I only discovered a few weeks ago that a version of ESA even exists still... if i'd known I'd have applied months ago

though either way I suspect you may have more professional documented evidence than I do... every time i see a new team I get into trouble for not being fully honest with GP/old team

any idea what sort of time the doctors might come speak to you? or anyone you can ask about it?

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 02:12 PM

Wow that’s tough

I really hope you manage to get it. Sounds like you could do with a break!

I do have a great deal of documented evidence tbh.

Why do you think you aren’t honest with your GPS?

shadow-light 22-03-2021 02:19 PM

i think i am stuck in the "not ill enough" mindset so i get scared about wasting their time, or not being believed

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 02:29 PM

You’re definitely not wasting their time
I understand the worry though

nonperson 22-03-2021 06:30 PM

Evening all.

What's on the dinner menus tonight? =)

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 06:51 PM

I had a ham and cheese sandwich!
I got an order from deliveroo.
Consisting mostly of diet coke

What about you np?

nonperson 22-03-2021 07:03 PM

Mm that's a good sandwich filling. You can't run out of diet coke =o

I want to have burgers.

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 07:08 PM

It is indeed!
No I definitely can't! I was already getting withdrawals!

Burgers sound good

[Luna] 22-03-2021 07:16 PM

Hey guys

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 07:20 PM

Hi Luna
How are you?

[Luna] 22-03-2021 07:24 PM

I’m ok, how are you?

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 07:45 PM

Not bad thanks. Not good but not bad.

You been up to much today?

not_so_insig 22-03-2021 07:46 PM

I dont know what to have for tea. I currently have hiccups.

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 09:02 PM

I had quiche :)

not_so_insig 22-03-2021 09:35 PM

I had omelette in the end.

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 09:39 PM

I’ve just had a hot chocolate.
It’s supper time but I didn’t fancy any toast

nonperson 22-03-2021 09:41 PM

Oh I feel like a hot chocolate now.

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 09:44 PM

I don't think I ever had toast at supper but I did like the hot chocolate.

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 09:48 PM

Do you have any np?
If so then you should have one!

I don’t usually tamo. If I somehow manage to miss lunch and dinner then I will.

tamobhuuta 22-03-2021 09:54 PM

That's good. Maybe try having toast even if you miss one meal?

Cacoethes 22-03-2021 10:01 PM

Maybe. Depends how things are going I suppose
I usually love toast but I seem to have gone off pretty much all food lately

[Luna] 23-03-2021 09:14 AM

Morning guys, what’s everyone up to today?

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 09:56 AM

Morning Luna
I'm not really up to anything
Might do some washing

How about you?

[Luna] 23-03-2021 09:59 AM

How are you getting on? They started you on your meds yet?

I have shop admin to do but I’m procrastinating by playing Sims.

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 10:17 AM

I'm hoping to see the doctor today to find out when I'm actually starting them.
They need to do blood tests first

The sims is so addictive!

[Luna] 23-03-2021 10:21 AM

Fingers crossed it soon.

Yeah it really is. It’s very easy to spend hours playing it lol.

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 10:40 AM


It is! Which sims are you playing?

[Luna] 23-03-2021 11:00 AM

Sims 4. I've switched it off now. Really must get some stuff done!

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 11:04 AM

I've only played up to sims 3.

*sends motivation*
You can do the things!

[Luna] 23-03-2021 11:12 AM

Thank you haha!

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 11:17 AM


I can't remember when I put my washing on.
Guess I'll just have to check it randomly!

tamobhuuta 23-03-2021 12:03 PM

My laundry builds up very quickly.

Today I am having a pyjama day, until I do exercise.

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 12:42 PM

So does mine. I don't have many clothes so I have to wash them a lot.

Sounds good!

[Luna] 23-03-2021 02:17 PM

Urgh this is not going well. Trying to do stuff but keep dissociating and doing something random. everything is all half done. frustrating.

[Luna] 23-03-2021 02:17 PM

Taking a break with mint hot chocolate

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 02:32 PM

Sorry to hear that Luna
Taking a break sounds like a good idea

[Luna] 23-03-2021 02:41 PM

Feeling like I'm going around in circles!

Hows your day going?

tamobhuuta 23-03-2021 02:43 PM

Mint hot chocolate is good. Did it help?

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 03:14 PM

I can imagine!

Not too bad I suppose. Except I still haven't seen the consultant and they couldn't get any blood at all from me.
I did my laundry though!

not_so_insig 23-03-2021 04:25 PM

I went to the local post office today. I went to the co-op nearby and wanted a pizza. I ended up coming out with 4 things including creme egg cupcakes.

not_so_insig 23-03-2021 04:49 PM

Also went to the park at the bottom of the road.

tamobhuuta 23-03-2021 06:22 PM

Creme egg cupcakes?????

nonperson 23-03-2021 06:44 PM

Need me some of those =o

tamobhuuta 23-03-2021 07:11 PM

How are you np?

[Luna] 23-03-2021 07:34 PM

Creme egg cupcakes sound amazing. I can’t wait for my op to be over so I can eat sugar again.

shadow-light 23-03-2021 07:45 PM

I cant decide if cream egg cup cakes sound awesome or sickly

Cacoethes 23-03-2021 07:48 PM

I imagine both hazel!

[Luna] 23-03-2021 07:49 PM

I imagine they would be quite sickly so maybe small cupcakes?
Will have to make some cornflake cakes with Joshy at some point.

shadow-light 23-03-2021 07:57 PM

Potentially an unpopular opinion, but I'm not a big fan of cream eggs to be honest

[Luna] 23-03-2021 08:04 PM

They are very sweet and sickly. I didn’t like them when I was a kid but love them now.
Do you have a sweet tooth Hazel?
