RE: Sorry Bout Having, A Long Long Break, But I've Been Busy.

Thursday, April 18, 2013

RE: Sorry bout having, a long long break, but i've been busy, doing stuff @ home, in my luvly luvly, FLAT!!!! !!!! !!!!.

I have missed you, all (my Online Family), so so much & i, have thought about you, all so so much, 2 since i last, came back online b4, (from my long previous break).

I have been busy, sorting out/painting, my luvly luvly Flat, i have painted my, Hall Sweet Sugar Pink, (Light Pink) i must, say that it looks, really really good!!!!, i have done the.

Colour Pink as it, goes with my Green, Carpet which are also, the 2 Colours that are, on my SparkPage 2, !!!! !!!! !!!! !!!!.

Health - wise things, have not been 2, good my Cellulitis (, Swelling of both my Legs, & ankles!!!!), came back again!!!!, so that made me, mad!!!! !!!! !!!!.

Plus i also re - broke, my little toe on, my right Foot !!!!, (i caught it, on the bathroom door, frame as i was, trying to get out, of the Bathroom), this is the 2nd time, this has happened in, exactly the same place.

Those of you who, know me quite well, know that i am, on a Benefit called, (Incapacity Benefit) i get, this as i have, a Disability which stops, me from going to Work.

Last time i was, Online i told you that, i went to/, for a Health Assesssment, @ Lincoln this was, on Monday 4th februaty 2013.

On Monday 25th February, 2013 i received a, Letter telling me that, i could no longer, qualify for Incapacity Benefit, & that i was, able to go back, to Work.

I texted my Family, as soon as i, heard about this, they were so horrified, so i then went, to the Job Centre, to show them the, Letter & i asked, for an Appeal Form.

To try to win, back my Incapacity benefit, i also asked if, i could have a, form to apply/, claim Income Support, i was told to, do it Online &, to send it off, i tried to do.

It Online + it, would have cost me, 7.40p (printing off costs, 10p a sheet !!!!), & there is no, way that i could, afford to do that, so i asked Helen, my luvly luvly (Sister).

If she could do, my Form for me, @ work which she, very very kindly did, for me i then, took this back to, the Job Centre, which was posted by, them on 11th March 2013.

I then thought/, hoped that i would, hear about this within, 2 weeks which never happened, so on 28th March 2013, i went back to, the Job Centre &, i asked about my.

Claim Form 4 Income, Support i was given, a fone number to, ring which i did, only to be told, that they had lost, my form so i, asked for another Claim, Form for Income Support.

Which i filled in, & then the Job, Centre posted off 4 me, as it was Easter, i knew the Offices would, be closed & that, they would re - open on , Tuesday 2nd April 2013.

I then thought/, hoped that i would, hear about this within, 2 weeks which did, happen on Monday 15th April, 2013 i received a letter, telling me.

That i do not, qualify to get Income, Support & that i, should apply to get, JSA (Job Seekers Allowance), the reason that i, do not qualify for, Income Support is that.

I am FIT FOR, WORK!!!! !!!! !!!!, so i went to the, Job Centre & i, showed them the Letter, they gave me a, fone number to ring, up which i did.

Do then after a, 2.5 hour fone conversation, they took my Claim, for JSA (Job Seekers Allowance) then, i asked if i, could get an advance, on my Benefit as.

I had no money, i ran out of, money on Thursday 14th, March 2013 (my last, Incapacity benefit Payment which, i had been given), since then i have, had no money what.

So ever!!!! !!!!, TBC TBC TBC TBC emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This an awful thing to have happen to you. Maybe if you enlist your doctor's help to show you can not work they will sort it out. In the meantime hoping and praying that you are given the money to live on and this all gets sorted. I don't know what your medical condition(s) is/are but it sounds like there is a mistake in the claims office somewhere. I hope it gets sorted out in your favor very soon! emoticon emoticon
