Hi I have a really aggressive case of multiple sclerosis along with depression and anxiety mostly due to have m.s. I was diagnosed with m.s just after I found out I was having a baby but had been suffering for the age of 16 with all the symptoms from m.s and being carried home by strangers off passing out but not knowing I had it. I am now 21 and I applied for DLA 2 years ago and I got declined so I went forward with a tribunal. Even at the tribunal I got rejected even though I still suffer every day, I can't walk without help, I still have falls, weakness and pain in my body, no strength, vision problems now and again and dizyness. Not just that but with depression and anxiety I can't leave the house without my mother otherwise I have a panic attack and she has to be with me incase I have a relapse, test I still got tuned down due to the fact I was pregnant at the time I applied and being pregnant keeps the m.s at bay which I think is disgraceful and so said a lot of people even professionals. I have now claimed p.i.p which I claimed for May 2014 and just 3 days ago I had my meeting with the specialist who writes the repot and even she said she can see how bad I am and how hard it is for me and she thinks it's disgusting what DLA did to me. I am now waiting to hear back from DWP for my decision so do hires crossed. When I was at the DLA tribunal I'm going to bring up that the way they tret me and spoke to me was disgusting they were treating me like a criminal and like it was an interrogation, I think they need to sort there priorities out because they are awarding people who have nothing wrong with then and can cope fine and then people like me and yous they are throwing to the ground and I've had enough of it because we are the ones that need it. My mother had to make me apply for DLA in the first place because I am scared of people and confrontation and them I get tret like that, I was a nervous wreck for months after that tribunal, same principle with p.i.p my mother had to beg me to apply for this, now if I was applying for it for faulse illness then why did I have to be pushed to apply tell me that. Fingers crossed I win this time.
