Hi everyone, I'm one of those who don't write a lot (but I try to read when my brain lets me lol).
I'm hoping I can bit of advice. As well as fibro I have chronic kidney disease, multiple endocrine neoplasia type1, hypercalcaemia, lymphodema, sciatica, nerve damage in my feet and lower legs and chronic back pain (after having microdoscectomy 2 yrs ago), oh and gallstones .... I think that's everything, I tend to forget stuff.
Anyway I have OT coming this afternoon to do an assessment. I'm really nervous about it ( not just for me but my hubby cos he needs help to help me, if you see what I mean). Are there any things in particular I should say or do? (like when we're told to use certain phrases when applying for DLA ). We are new to asking for help from social services/ council as we've struggled to manage ( and care for our two autistic children). I don't know how to explain what I/ we need and an worrying I'll forget stuff too.
Any advice or tips would be really appreciated.
