I got a reply from DLA refusing to award me any rate for either mobility or care. I went to the CAB because the person who helped me do the form was almost sure I was going to get some help but he wasn't there.
The person i spoke to didn't know much about this and his boss said to him that it wasn't worth to appeal if I had no reason, which put me off even if they didn't know a word about the case.
Anyway they gave me the form to appeal and told me to wait for an adviser but after over two hours I was so sick of the seat and felt so bad I had to leave.
I am thinking about writing the appeal myself and taking to the CAB next week for them to have a look. I am just afraid I don't say the right thing. I am hoping to go to tribunal where the benefit specialist will help - I can't see this lady until June 15th.
On what they based their response is not fully correct or correct at all, I thought the form was quite clear though, I don't understand why they seem to have mist some clear points like the fact that I am neglecting myself, I am at risk of dangers from dizzy spells and blackouts etc...
Tomorrow I have my ESA medical and after this experience i am really not expecting anything positive. The worst is that without the ESA I can't even afford my rent - I am in an awful situation. I am not sure if my solicitor can do anything about this - since all my problems come from a car accident and I am still waiting to close that claim.
I am really panicking and so fed up!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe they refused to help at all, for some reason I was expecting a more positive answer - not a fair one but definetely a more human one.
Has anyone gone through a similar experience or have a good advise to give?
