Oh well went for my first tier-appeal on Wednesday and knew as soon as I entered the room that they had already made their decision especially when the Dr said 'even though you say you don't go far from the house you've managed to get here'. well yes because I thought I had to attend and my mum drove me!! Plus questioning why I wasn't on certain medication (even though i'm on loads) and why I didn't have any disablity aids in the house, well if i've never been told how you go about getting them and my dr hasn't suggested it how would I know!! Suppose my main dilema is do I contact someone to represent me now (was going to originally but after having an operation it slipped my mind and I left it too late) or do I just give up now. It's a year since I applied for DLA and really don't think I could face another hearing. The letter arrived and just said the appeal was refused and that I wasn't entitled to either component because I do not satisfy the satutory criteria of either component at any rate....and all its made me feel is even more worthless as if all my health issues are nothing. Wouldn't write this on my facebook page as it's something the majority of people wouldn't understand...thanks for listening to my rant....Rachel xx
