Last week I had a visit from the Occupational therapist who ordered me a bath board ,trolley,bed stick & perching stool.These arrived yesterday and are proving helpful.
I also saw the social worker,she is writing to DLA to add support to my claim & is applying for funding for meals on wheels for me as I can't prepare meals.They are the ones on the TV Wiltshire farm foods .
Yesterday I went to CAB for help in trying to get DLA (been refused twice) The lady wrote the form and a really good information section for me and copied relevant documents so I just have to put it in an envelope and post it!
I had a letter from ESA today to say that I have my home assessment on 17th november.between 4.30pm and 7.30pm! I'm usually in bed by then so I rang them up to get an earlier time.I also asked if the Dr who would be coming knew about fibro.The rather vague answer was that all the Drs are trained in all conditions.I said no they are not and could she put on my notes that I have requested a Dr who knows about fibro because if he came out and he didn't he would have to leave and it would be a waste of his and my time!
I didn't get my earlier appointment though.
