    Took me almost two years and about 30 letters, but they finally agreed to give me a new medical and in doing so then agreed to put me in the Support group.

    Nice to have some good news for a change, but im still counting the cost each day to my health because of all the stress and work ive had to put into it.

    Congratulations snowathlete.

    When I looked at the criteria, it looked really unlikely that I'd get in to the support group... but the work related group is going to make life so much worse, for no reason. The criteria are so inappropriate for the purpose of the groups.

    Thanks everyone. I still feel tired out by it but each day a little better knowing I did it in the end.
