Hi I'm new to this message board, my name is Sarah and I live in the UK with my lovely husband Paul, Marilyn the bulldog and Scooby the parrot. I've been diagnosed with ME for about 5 years but think I've had it a lot longer. I had a letter from the DWP yesterday cancelling my incapacity benefit. I was so upset that my dog had a fit in sympathy which was really scary. Has anyone else had the same thing happen, and can they offer any words of wisdom on how I sort this out. I'm devastated and it is a financial disaster. Sympathy or empathy would be good too. I've been very emotional about the whole thing. I've just written to my MP. Doubt if it will do any good, but it made me feel a bit better. What we dont understand is that the answers they've shown on the form bear no relation to the answers I gave in the interview.
