I hate the way I feel I have lost control of my body, I hate the way I feel I have lost control of my mind, I hate that I feel I have to be interogated by a complete stranger to prove I need help because I cant cope with work. I hate that the decision to give up work was not mibe but forced on me.  I,m sorry but I needed to say that.trae. trantrahope you understand.hope

Thankyou. I have problems getting my voice heard on telephone so don't usually use it, but if I get too stressed I will give it a go. If datscan confirms diagnosis I know future will be better supported. When I filled out form I had not even provincial DX so all I could wasxwaffle away about symptoms. Last year I was put straight in support group without f2f and I think I was expecting same again.. I think it's doesn't help that instead of being smiley positive for a while you have to oo doom and gloom about how you feel, which of course makes you feel worse.

Hi. I survived te f2f although I found it very distressing as did my daughter who supported me on the day. The really weird thing is I have just received notification that I have been placed in support group another year dated several days before the f2f. Do these people actually know what they are doing?
