I only hope that I get it soon. I have 25% of my pancreas working since Nov. '09, and I know of a half dozen people that have gotten their disability & there is no reason they can't work, I'd give anything to have my life prior to '09 back.

I try to get our goverment to check each case.They say there aren't enough people to check.Well let the public check, we have eyes.If more thanthree people report one person for fraud that should be checked out....the guy on the roof cant work he has a bad back...then why is he out there going up and down the ladder carring large amounts of heavy shengles.Well guess what!

NOW IS THE TIME THIS GOVRMENT DOES NOT TURN THEIR BACKS ON THE UNFORTUNATE AMONGST US THE EXAMPLE SET BY PARA OLYMPICS MUST NOT BE IN VAIN I KNOW I SPOKE TO A LADY IN THAT POSITION ASKED HER ABOUT THE PARA OLYMPICS SHE SAID AFTER I SAW THAT I PUT MY FEET ON THE GROUND FIRST TIME IN 7 YEARS I M SURE MANY MANY MORE WILL TRY AND RELEASE THE SHACKLES THEY HAD AROUND THEM AND WE SHOULD REJOICE THEY TASTE THE FRUITS OF LIFE NOT THE BITTER DREGS.

My son has CP, autism, Short gut, feeding tube, siezures, and a cyst in his brain. But the american goverment does not let him draw disability because he is only 6 1/2 years old and the goverment bases it on my income. I am a nurse. So as soon as I quit my job he can. does that sound missed up?

That is a screwed up system.

ATOS staff need to live in the shoes of a person who has a visible/invisible disability for just one day, then tell us how we can manage. instead of paying a company x amount the government to look after us. Most of the people who find themselves in need of help have worked hard and paid their way. When they need the most help the door is shut in your face!

good luck Jeannette, i hear more and more people having to fight for their right to able to have some sort of life....it just kills me just thinking about it !!

The Government should stop taking all their pay raises (which are ridicules high) and stop taking from people who truly need the little money that they are getting from disability to begin with. I have already been a victim of this myself. It affects both my child, and myself.

If they are going to take away benefits for Disabled people, then take them away from everyone, scrap Child Benefit & working tax credits...make companies pay a proper wage so people don't have to top up their wages.. Stop giving criminals more help & support than you give our troops, Stop allowing everyone to live here when they have nothing to give this country yet they can claim our benefits.. grow a backbone & sort it out before we become a 3rd world country..

Daniel-Steven Jaqnerico, I'm saddened by your story and I know a little of how it can be. I'm on SSMI but deal with physical disability as well. So I can sympathize with the turmoils of the "system". I just wanted you to know you are being heard. And I'm sending blessings to you.
