This is my first message, Have been suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, osteoporosis for over 10 years, it has been and continues to be a long hard struggle. have been having a particularly bad time since end of last year due to death of a loved one, doctor said I'm suffering from grief.
What I have discovered is that grief makes the whole disability a thousand times worse and I cannot get myself into a more comfortable and managable place. Due to the grief I cannot do a number of things that I was doing to keep myself functioning eg; meditation, tai chi etc;
Although I have been receiving DLA for the past 8/9 years they have now cut me off which I do not understand, if anything the illness has got worse. They tell me that DLA is not applicable for people over 65 the benefit is attendance allowance, since there are things that I can still do for myself they are stipulating that I am not entitled to benefits.
Question; Is there anyone out there that can advise me on this?
