Just had a decision back from a mandatory review from Dla saying that nothing has changed in my condition since 2012. I was rewarded the middle rate care back in December last year until December next year . But I really struggle getting out. I wrote them a 6 sided a4 letter about my difficulties that I use a wheelchair but need someone to push me as I can not self propel and I can not use crutches anymore as I can not lean on them as my arms are in agony all the time and my hands can not hold the handles. In the decision the man goes on about me not telling them anything different from 2012. Oh I thought I said I use a wheelchair now that is different. He says that I can use a commode at night .I wasn't talking about at night! I am still under my pain management but he says I am not . Do they actually read our letters.
When I did my review in December they granted me my care component back without a medical. Don't get me wrong pleased about that but how can they take a medical from 2012 and say that I my condition has not changed when it has without actually looking at me and seeing how I go on getting in and out if a car and in and out of my wheelchair. I get confused and panic when I am out but he has completely ignored all this. Does anyone know what the next stage is for me ? I am really angry these people do not understand how lives are day to day. Yes I may have been able to walk to the bus stop in 2012 but not now. Please any advise would be gratefully accepted.
