Thursday 6th July 2017 – I Continually Have To Explain My Health Issues To Prospective Employers, Due To Lack Of Help To Access Health Investigations/Treatments From DWP & Others (JSA 3rd claim)

I continue to actively jobseek. I do actually want to work. I actually want a career, and to better myself.

But how many employers would be minded to employ me, when for the last month (it’s only just stopped, apart from a dot) I lost huge quantities of blood/clots, and when my sanitary towel can flood in less than a minute. This means I wouldn’t be able to attend a job interview when my blood loss is at its heaviest.

For some of the jobs I apply for, I am asked to list any reasonable adjustment, and why I may need the employer to make any reasonable adjustment, to enable me to attend interview.

Can you imagine how I feel having to list this?

I have been asking the DWP and others for help for years to help me attend medical appointments I’m most stressed about. But I get zero help. So my health issues worsen, as they’re not investigated, or treated. It worries me sick.

If I had the help I’d been asking for, for years, I’d be much more employable. “Access To Work” won’t help me. When I get the time, I’ll dig out my notes from my 1st PIP Tribunal in 2015, where the female Judge looked away as though with sniffy disdain/disgust/incredulity as I gave some of my answers, and where I was mortified to be there, trying to explain my health issues, in front of 2 men (as well as 2 women). The male panel member also looked equally unsympathetic/incredulous. I’d had no legal help, and no-one to take with me.

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've kept paper records of most of my interactions with the DWP, HMRC etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, for a variety of reasons. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
