}:) }:) ~X( Here we go again with the DWP!!
I have been in reciept of DLA (disibility living allowance) for 10 years(re-applying every so many years, get turned down and fight it) on the highest rate for both compnants!!!
I am aware that many people practise benefit fraud but......You can't really do that at this level! So, my award (I love the terminology - makes it sound like a medal :-( ) has ran out (5 years last time) and I have just been turned down flat - no reduction in rate .....just nothing!!!!
The last time, I was refused,took it to tribunal and won my case ..........We have to do it again! }:)
Last time (S.Wales) it was just a short train ride and a taxi :-)This time as moved county and a different set up, we will probably be facing a much physically strenuous journey with a MUCH higher price tag which in this day and age we can all do without (I mean well over £100 here as we don't drive!! ) ><
I spent half a hour this morn talking my wonderful husbAnd/carer down and so am now feeling very frustrated,humiliated and just a tad worried!!
There are many of us in this position! Do the gov. Honestly believe that we are all trying to swindle?? I worked damn hard before this happened to my spine and would love to do so again!!! I am also fully aware that with the new government changes, cuts have to be made but???????
Rant over guys thanx - sarah x0
