Thursday 26th April

So a blog update. First of all I want to thank a good friend of mine, Ami, she is helping me get a few things sorted out in my life. My benefits and also getting the correct diagnosis for a health issue.

I have got my ESA appeal tomorrow. I've decided to kick my tenancy support worker in to touch as my original ESA50 form he filled in was not up to standard and was missing a lot of information. Ami has re-filled in the form with more information, which we have gained from my GP.

She has made my GP look at my health issues, and is pushing for a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia.

My bad back problem is Kyphoscoliosis and also Scoliosis (details below), with this and a on going breathing issue and chest pain, I'm not in good shape.

Kyphoscoliosis is a deformity of the spine characterized by abnormal curvature of the vertebral column in two planes (coronal and sagittal). It is a combination of kyphosis and scoliosis. It is seen in many disorders such as Syringomyelia and can cause many conditions such as pulmonary hypertension.

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine has a sideways curve. The curve is usually "S"- or "C"-shaped. In some, the degree of curve is stable, while in others, it increases over time. Mild scoliosis does not typically cause problems, while severe cases can interfere with breathing.

So, the 27th April, had call from Tribunals service, my ESA appeal has been postponed due to the same judge that did my PIP appeal being in today - more stress and waiting, just whats not needed

20th May, another update and my ESA Appeal is taking place on the 31st May, and another plus, have had the doctor agreeing with possible Fibromyalgia, so that is a plus, and will help (just as well the appeal date was postponed!). 

I am still getting annoyed with my self for forgetting things and not being able to do what I need and want to, its getting to the point where I do it so much it upsets me.

7th June, another update with some good news, thanks to my friend Ami, finally had my appeal for my ESA and the tribunal over turned the medical assessors decision to find me fit for work, and have decided I have very limited capacity for work. My ESA will be reinstated and I am now awaiting a letter from the DWP.

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems. The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK. David Cameron is to stand down ( real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship. One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today ' We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week. We ne

Had first part of my vaccine - edited 14th March

So, Saturday I had the first part of the Covid vaccine . I had the Oxford AstraZeneca one. Don't get me wrong, I am over joyed to have been called up for it, but the side effects since are not too good, but as people keep telling me, "it's a sign it is working", geee, thanks for that! Before I go any further I want to say a massive thank you to AstraZeneca and also the University of Oxford, and the Swansea Bay NHS health board for getting this out. During yesterday afternoon my arm started hurting and then I started feeling as if I had a head cold coming on. Later in the evening my mind got a bit foggy. Day two since first part of vaccine jab,  I was woken at about 5am this morning. Feeling worse,  , woke up in a pool of sweat, and somehow managed to squash my pillow up and out of its pillowcase in the night. The sweat I could have done without, it was horrible waking up to that, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, waking up in sweat just made me have to get up s

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament. At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back. UK regions such as Wales , Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the rep ort, by a network association of European regions. This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly , and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys . These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding. The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2:  #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter
