I have been recieving dla since 2004 and without this payment my life would be much more difficult.I have arthritis in both knees making walking very difficult, I have many days when I am bedridden and housebound,I have other days when I need to use crutches.2 years ago I developed a heart problem and had 2 stents placed in a artery,I then developed PMR followed by diabetes type 2. I dont have a day free without pain.I currently take 17 tablets per day and when I was originally assessed for DLA I did not have as many Illnesses as I do now yet I am extremely worried about what I read about people having their DLA stopped. I use my DLA wisely and to the benifit of my health,but I am worried and the stress is making me feel depressed. I have a car which is my only mode of transport,without DLA I would not be able to travel,go shopping as I cannot walk far or carry anything heavy and I have read that ATOS not really taking all peoples Illness's seriously. Thank you.
