I applied online for a Blue Badge a couple of weeks ago. I have had no communication since then until yesterday. The letter said " We are pleased to tell you that your application for a Blue Badge was successful ".
I wrote on the application that I had Stage 3 COPD severe and that I find it hard to walk very far without getting breathless.That was generally it. Whether they contacted my doctor or not, I do not know, or maybe COPD is starting to be recognised as a disease that can impair ones walking and general way of life.
I will be updating my first pulmonary test blog soon which seems to suggest I am actually Stage 4.
