Still waiting to be awarded DLA…

Just a quick update for regular readers, who may be wondering if I have been awarded DLA yet. You’d think so, having been in pain for over a year, using a wheelchair for all journeys for a year, having home care provide me with daily personal care for 7 months…

No. I haven’t. My Tribunal has been moved back again.

But in any case, it is hard to be sure that I will be awarded DLA, given the increasing number of scary stories in the press such as this about how hard it is for people with disabilities to claim any of the State Support that you may feel they should be entitled to. You know, to be able to participate in society- to hold down a job, to travel to work, to parent, to enjoy leisure time. All those things the able take for granted.

I’ll continue to post as the situation develops.
