let me start by wish you all a Happy New Year and wishing you as many pain free day.
I had my assesment in November only had 3 days warning as someone had rang and cancelled their appointment. lucky for me i was ready anyway had all my paperwork including a copy of the application form i sent. I had the assesment and the doctor who did the assesment was well versed in Fibro and how it affected people. I told her that i felt like a fraud because looking at me you would think i had no problem as she said that many peole with fibro felt the same way.
Well from start to finish it took 5 weeks all together to received the brown envelope dropped on the mat and i was blown away when i opened the letter to find out that i have been awarded the high rate for personal care but nothing for mobility. so i would say give it a go you never know. Fibro is a disease that is now recognised and we are not trying to pull the wool we do have an illness.
