It seems after 18 months the DWP have found me to be disabled. Hurray!
So they paid me a back payment and managed to withhold over a thousand pounds, I had to call them and totally embarrass the random guy that I spoke to. I have no doubt in my head if I had not called them about that I would never have seen the money.
Do any of you get this; I am sick of explaining that physical disability does not mean we are all mad. I still think that I finally got my home assessment because I sent the most sarcastic letter I could to point that fact out.
Some of you might think that I should be grateful for the fact, but I’m not as their findings mean I cannot work. I actually want to work as there is still too much life ahead of me to spend it living on benefit.
But, it is also hard as if I request to be put in a work group they will start to take benefit away from me; I just want to hear from any of you that have been through this.
What I have done so far is to contact some recruitment consultants that know me and am trying to find Employers that support people with a disability, if any of you know anything that can help or offer advice then I would love to hear from you.
I am never going to stop fighting this....
