the chap that came to visit from d.w.p was very nice. asked a lot of questions about daily living problems, hospital visits and medication. answered as best I could, had evidence of appointments, medication etc.explained I needed help with personal care, etc and that if I didnt pay for taxi's I would be more isolated that what I am at present, and that this disease has a tremendous physological effect and explained the effort to go shopping with friends is becomming too much, and this results in increased isolation.
I guess it was good for me to voice these problems, as I tended to be in denial of the severity of the desease.
anyway, we shall wait and see the forms now go to Preston and it could take up to eight weeks for the decision.he explained my right to appeal if not sucessful. it is the attendance allowance that is being applied for,... iam too old for the other one. anyway.glad its over, glad I had the "I'm fine" nonsense out of my way and I must say the feeling of really telling it how it is was very theraputic
once again thanking you fine folk for your guidance and support. I am now away to have a pile of chips to celebrate...x
