A woman I know, that I have known for about 8 years has totally blown me away,
On Facebook people were discussing the changes in DLA and all the rubbish along with it, when this so called "friend" turns round and says the special olympics has ruined 90% of DLA claims. I asked why? She said that the olympics proved no matter what you have wrong with you there is a job out there. I said excuse me! you are putting every disability into one catagory. She said, oh get over it Tre you are only questioning me cos you feel picked on!!!!!!!! I was furious, I said you have no idea K***. I wish I had only lost a limb, I might be able to cope better than I do now. SHe turned round and said I should spend some time with an amputee to see what they have to put up with, phantom pain in the missing limb! I just sat and sobbed, I thought she knew what I went through.........I am so angry, What hope to we have,,,,,,honestly.
