Hi this is my first post been reading for a few weeks since joining and everything sounds like dejavu. I have had Fibro and me for about 12 years but was only diagnosed a year ago I felt like I was mad before that. I have been fighting for dla for the last year and finally go to appeal on Friday. I'm terrified I've never had to go to court or anything. I've been struggling financially for about 5 years since I had to cut my hours at work. I'm just amazed that at the medical the guy listened to what I had to say then totally ignored it all and stamped my file with deny. I felt so humiliated I've been so depressed cried my eyes out and caused myself so much pain for nothing. I wrote to 3 mps on the advise of my independent living advisor and asked for some help only to be ignored by all of them. I feel so alone in all this even my ila decided she couldn't help me. Sorry feeling really down just wanted to say all this to get it off my chest xxx
