Well this morning i am feeling a little less stressed out now, thank you to a lovely lady named Sharon from Barnsley DIAL, who visited me this morning to help me complete the dreaded DLA forms.
I contacted DWP for the DLA forms just before the new forms for PIP came into force, so this will be a claim for DLA, anyway i was totally confused and didnt know which way to turn until someone told me to phone DIAL and someone would help me, so i did and the lovely Sharon paid me a visit this morning, she completed the forms and gave me some very useful advice and explained loads of things to me.
To cut a long story short, i am currently on ESA and after a medical with atsos over 8 months ago i was placed in the support group, because of severe depression and having a total thyroidectomy, they have since sent me a further questionaire which i completed and then got a letter saying i was still in the support group. But since this last questionaire i have finally been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and was told to apply for DLA, however i wasnt too sure if i would be able to apply but i phoned DWP and they sent me the forms out. Then the confusion sent in Thank the lord for Sharon she has been this morning helped me with the forms & said i must inform her weather or not i will get any DLA and if there is anything else i would like help with no matter how small it is i have to contact her which i thought was really nice of her. She did say because ive got a letter already from my Gp & are already placed in the support group i stand a good chance but like i said to her nothing is straight forward for me lmao. How many of you have been successful ???? I didnt even know i could claim DLA so if i dont get it my way of thinking oh well, how many of you have had to go to a tribual and is it worth it ???????? i get really upset & very ill when i have to go anywhere so i dont really know if i could handle it all.
Sorry for going on a bit and if some off it dont make much sense,i often think what i want to put but it never comes across like it Gentle Hugs to you all xxx
