I have applied for Blue Badge no turning back

Thats it done and how good i feel!! I struggle so muchly strengths in my arms and 10 mins of been on feet and doing anything feel i need support!

Sick of concentrating too hard and focusing too much.

After my visit with Brain specialist and what conversation went on i just thought.. Thats it had enough now... How would i feel if my legs gave on me in supermarket or shops?!?!?

I felt like returning the question!! Society today not everyone looks and helps! I laugh my issues off but seriously i just live in a dream world because i think wake up tomoro and all be gone x

Thank you kialaya, no one wants a disability but i feel this is what help i need really just a little support am not claiming for any benefits or carers allowance even though brain specialist asked if my hubby was?!? I only do driving about and very very light chores as its a strain now booo. Hate admitting to it aswell it pains me lol xxx

Hia scrumie! :-)

Ohh been going on 2 yrs but had not what i xall disability trouble summer 2010 as it was certain parts issues, but it has progressed since neck going 3 times in 2011 and nerve compression but being diagnosed with bhms too combining the 2 can be disabling at times to where i stay home! My arms and hands are v weak i find doing house chores hard wrk too now. On disability i wanted to put both left leg and arms but you can do one or other so chose arms and added info on leg extra as i give from my waist unpredictably. Xx i know ppl who can do so much more than i can and have a badge so why should i not have one i no longer do physical side of my job and its cost me to pay for help as self employed. Xx

Hi fairycazzie

I've had by blue badge over 3 yrs. I cried when it came, sorrow that I needed it & had "given in". That soon passed! No more driving round town looking for a spot to park, reversing in then realising I was too far from the shops & having to drive round again!

It has given me such freedom! I can now park outside restarunts, next to entrance of shops, near the cinema etc. Good luck in getting yours. Xx
