After years of delaying and trying to keep all of this under wraps, the Department for Work and Pensions has finally been forced to release the number of confirmed deaths arising from its brutal welfare sanctions. At least 2380 people with disabilities have died between 2011 and 2014 due to having been wrongfully declared "fit for work". http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/aug/27/thousands-died-after-fit-for-work-assessment-dwp-figures See the video below for the testimony of the sister of Mark Wood, a 44 year old Aspie who starved to death after being declared "fit for work".
I don't recall seeing any discussion about this on Asperclick so far, so here's a thread to discuss anything related to Britain's upcoming referendum on its continued membership of the European Union, scheduled to take place the 23rd of June 2016. Keep it civil and stick to the issues, please.
Winona posted a topic in Symptoms & DiagnosisHello everyone! Tomorrow, I will be seeing my doctor to ask if he can refer me to specialist. It is about getting a diagnosis for Asperger's Syndrome. I live in South East Britain. So, I would love to hear from others in England who had gone through the process of getting yourself formally diagnosed. How was your path? Was your GP knowledgeable about Asperger's? Was he or she well-acquainted with all the steps that a patient might have to go through? How long did it take you to get the diagnosis? Is it a longwinded journey? I'm really interested in those of us who used the NHS in your area for this issue. I am really not willing to pay to have this diagnosis. I would love to hear about your recent experiences.
