hi,just a quick update..i recieved my statement of reasons from the tribunal judge....i must say that i now feel they are all in it together!!! they used "part" of my answers..eg.i was asked why i dont wear pads at night so my son or daughter would not need to be with me during the night..that was an insult in its self,i explained that my legs and arms are dead after bieng asleep so cant safely stand,hence the need for help..so she said would i not concider pads..i said no as im not incontinent just need help to get to and on my comode..so i dont have accidents..either falling or wetting myself..she said ,,so you wont concider pads then? no was my answer,,she replied i was being selfish..i replied tough i have my dignity!...long story sorry,,but to get to my point in the statment of reasons,,apparently when i was asked about pads etc my answer was .".tough"!!!..so not really a full and clear picture of wat i really said!!..showering they said i only needed help to wash my back...at one point i said..im very lucky that i have good children who look after me,and i thanked god i was "spoiled"..the judge said..there was no reason for me to have help during the day and that i was spoilt!!! seems we cant win.he said that the ATOS dr.report was correct..even though i had a letter of appology from ATOS stating that their was mistakes in docs report!! so looks like i will have to claim again! 14 months down the drain!!..one thing is for sure im going to re apply!! i will not be fobed off.rant over..for now lol any thoughts or advise i would be gratfull xxxxxxxx
