Completing DLA & BLUE BADGE forms hell! :-(

Today I have just plucked up the courage to start to fill in my DLA & BLUE BADGE application forms, ( i have already completed this form once for my disabled son) it's really depressing to admit how bad I really am and how much help I do need! :-( Now I am in absolute agony! And I've still got half the DLA form to fill in! It's going to be another long and painfully night, my whole body is so sore! :-( Why should it be so difficult for genuine people who need help to get it, when 'there are a lot of people who have a lot less health issues than me who get the help' (these were my doctors words! She's great! wish everyone had such a supportive GP) Night, Night all, sending gentle hugs to you all xx

My pleasure Raeben, happy to help any time.!

Best of luck! Any problems or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask, always happy to help. :)



good luck with the claim. I don't think they expect genuinne people to be able to fill the form in, in ne go. I recently filled in forms for ga review and had to do it over a few days. I don't think I could possibly concentrate on each question correctly if i filled them in all together, but you are certainly best to get them done now rather than wait as when they being in the changes it will be even harder to get a claim, it's always scary when they put time limits on completing the forms as that makes you even more anxious. good luck xxx


Check to see if you have a "Disability Rrghts" group in your area. They know how to do it to your best advantage and if you have problems writing they will fill it in for you.


I hate filling forms in. it takes me forever. I did a DLA form for my daughter earlier on in the year and between starting it an sending it back it ook three weeks. Good luck with it all xxxxx
