ive just got my form for the dla i dont want to apply for mobility as im coping at the moment , i also want to kep working for my 12 hours a week but i cant do no more and im allowed to sit at work as well. i do want to apply cos i have trouble with cooking ie cant peel potatoes anymore but can take some mash out of freezer and chuck in microwave, sometimes if im bad the kids bring me some drink and toast before they go to school and i can stay upstairs as i have an ensuite. im on anti depressants for the fibro and depression and have to wear a mask at night as i have obstructive sleep apnea which one of the kids helps me on with it when i go to bed which is usually well before them!
im under alot of stress at moment got son and his girlfriend whos pregnant moving back in but in the summerhouse as have no room in the house for them as hes got himself into finacial probs hes also got bipolar and adhd and has dla and his gf is his carer.
what i want to ask is with all this going on should i claim ? will i be entitled to it for the fibro and osa esp if i want to carry on working , i know i wont get high dla or mobility but is it worth it?
