  • I know the feeling I was told that as I am a carer for my Aspergers daughter and work full time I cannot be disabled and they took everything from me as well including the mobility car so not only did I lose the money but also had to find a new car as I cannot manage without it.

    I used my DLA to pay for private treatment which I can no longer afford and become worse each day also the stress I was put through was awful. But most of all it was the feeling of being branded a liar and a fraud by the ATOS Dr that upset me the most.

    I know it is not the answer for you I gave up as I just could not handle it anymore but I am working eventually though I will have to face up to it I know.

    Good Luck Apply again now so even if you win your appeal you can withdraw the new one if not you will not lose everything as they only backdate a short while.

  • hey onhereagain its horrid isnt it i have to do something maybe we could do a petition or protest if we all get together were the ones being penalizied for having an illness that 1 isnt seen and 2 isnt recognised it really isnt fair but please you keep in touch try to stay positive im trying not winning all the time but i do keep trying love and gentle hugs lyn xx

  • I received DLA while looking after my son with Asperger's so it seems it depends on who looks at your claim as to whether you get DLA or not.

    The whole system is very unfair .

    I'm waiting on the result of my DLA renewal , but whatever it costs me health-wise , if it's turned down I will fight to the nth degree . As I'm agoraphobic, they can blummin well come to me !

  • im so so sorry u didnt get dla......its just soooooooooo wrong...ive got my appeal in 2 weeks but im dreadin it as i dont feel hopeful...........dont give up hun and i hope things look up 4 u in other ways...take care xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
