Hi all just to let everyone know I have been to my DLA appeal today, let me just say this is my second attempt ! Well got there, had to use my wheelchair as its just to far to walk from the car park. Took a fab letter from my Doctor who is supporting me really well! Well got in and from the first look on the panels faces I had no chance of winning! Questions asked were, `did I have a holiday last year?` next question `if I can drive a short way in my car then how come I cannot peel a banana`? I was treated like something they had walked in outside, to which case I lost everything no award given even on all the supporting evidence I had! please can someone tell me why is it I cannot go on holiday even with having Fibromyalgia? Arnt we allowed to have a break away anymore? I am so mad grrrr Its took 17months to get to appeal and what for? If they are not going to allow us any support why dont they offer just to have us put down instead!! The last appeal took over two years to get to appeal, that one also turned down! Any advise would be appreciated! I know I have to fight on, got a appointment with my MP tomorrow as they dont know why I have been turned down when I have to use a wheelchair! Will let you all know how i get on with appointment tomorrow! Also a Wefare Rights person was surposed to have been there to represent me but didnt bother to turn up! My MP has said this is so wrong as they get funded to support me on my appeals and paper work!
