Yesterday my partner was very relieved to have come through a terribly stressful time, was successful in her tribunal hearing and could at last look forward to concentrating on her recovery after her recent major operation.
I came home today to find her upset once more.
She had in her hand an ATOS ESA50 form (below) which came through our door this morning spelling the start of the whole process once more. This is really getting too sick for words.
At least she had around 20 hours of peace.
The parting shot from the Tribunal Judge yesterday was “at least you can put all this stress behind you and concentrate on recovery” – Fat chance with the DWP and ATOS hounding her again 😦
2 years ago I would never have believed what a totally adversarial system that benefits were these days. I had wrongly assumed that they were part of a fair and honest process.
