I haven't appealed yet but I will. I'm going to write my appeal over the next few days, I started today, so far it's very... tongue in cheek and sarcastic.

I tried to do it on my own. It's getting a real struggle the signing on specially now they are trying to send me to a back to work group session.Your joking? Did you have any welfare advisers with you? OR did you try to do it on your own?
This is also what is happening to me, but, cant_carry_on- it really goes deeper than that, why should you sign on for work when you cant work?
I'm slightly skeptical but, I'd happerly hedge a bet as to say that your defo not alone, and that because of the incompetence of the "doctors" on the assesment this wont be a singular issue.
For starters it is irrefutable that they did not pay any attention to my questionnaire whatsoever, it has been completely ignored. Yet the decision says that my score has been decided on both the medical report and the questionnaire. It is so easy to see that someone in the office has just took one look at the medical report score of 0 and then hit their button for fail.you can give an example of why you think the decision maker got it wrong, such as:For example, in my questionnaire I stated that because of my depression I usually cannot motivate myself to do everyday things like getting out of bed, washing, dressing or eating breakfast unless my partner repeatedly encourages me. Yet I was awarded no points for this.This is only one example of why I think the decision is wrong.
Also looking up the word anguish in the Oxford dictionary provides you with the definition of "severe mental or physical pain".Interaction with others is misinterpreted most days leading to mental anguish for the person
Is it just me or does the statement mean that d) applies to me and that I should have been awarded 9 points for this alone?
