Hi All, Firstly a big thankyou to this site for trying to help with the Esa50 etc. I am a carer for my fiance who suffers with several illnesses. And after a 4 week wait I got a phone call which I took today, stating my fiance has got into the support group for 3 years, as apparently this is the longest time period.
I would like to say to others out there, that yes it can be stressful waiting for a reply etc, but all I can say is try and get as much medical evidence as you can Ie, Doctors letters or anything else you may have that is past and up to date letters. I filled out the esa50 for my fiance and found a site that helped me. You may be able to find a esa50 questionairre on line that helps you with the answers and how to answer them correctly etc. I think if you treat the esa50 as though you having your worse day etc you should hopefully be ok.
I wish everyone luck and try not to concentrate on bad horror stories, remember as much evidence in doctors letters helps so much.
