I have applied for DLA twice now and have been rejected both times. I use crutches most days of the week, I get extremely anxious in crowded places, I cannot concentrate on most days (most people will know this as 'Fibro Fog') and I have difficulty lifting heavy items, including kitchen items.
They explained that, though I have difficulty, I can still walk, I can still lift things without help from others and I do not need someone with me when I go out.
I'd like to know who agrees with them in that I do not deserve DLA, and who disagrees. Does anyone think I should appeal?
