- Already had rationaslized I would not get it as people worse off than myself had failed -
And had given myself a rational course of action and plan - apply appeal pip ect -
but what I hadn't seen coming was just how upset, useless and stressed and fearful for the future I would feel. Because to fill in these forms you have to really focuss on how disabled you are and how you manage to /or do not manage get around things on a daily basis. Then the form comes back you are denied help stating you can walk - 50 yards slowly in a reasonable manner.
which translates too -
Whoopie at 51 - I can walk 50 yards.
slower than friends who are 65 plus
in a reasonable manner. (The effects of the weather/hot or cold making symptoms worse, carriyng bags, breathlessnes, stopping for breat chest infections 91 year old lungs are what is meant by a reasonable manner ).
I had only wished a small miracle for the lower rate for moblity but didn't expect to feel guilty or a fraud for daring to put in a claim - but I did.
I now am in a catch 22 as realise how much my old car has become my life line - And now the car will have now have to go in January as on JSA -£70 as I will not be able to afford it any more - mot Insurance ect. So when that happens will be imprisoned in flat and feel like my independence has gone--- as I can't walk as far as the local shops bus stops train stops or get to doctors or chemists ect
Up until now I always thought I could manage my illness and lack of funds and still keep possitive - but now with thoughts of winter no heating and shortly no car I am at a loss at what to do? sorry to be so selfish.
