Well glad today is over for my husband but as I thought no award hummm..
He was scored 6 points which is up from 0. His Welfare Officer not happy and wants to take it to the High Court now. Today was very stressful for us both. I felt like I was letting my husband down having to tell a panel how he is at home. His mood swings his anger issues how he uses inappropriate language and give examples. How he cant hold a job down as it always ends in him being suspended for inappropriate language/comments. The Tribunal accepts that my husband has effects of head injury but not to the extent to score the number of points to qualify....
Here we go off to the High Court. Welfare Officer had asked that they score my husband 6 points for the Engaging with other people face to face as he is a risk to himself and public too he got 2. Hopefully once he get transcript of hearing there will be enough in that to push his case. He said we both did great and gave them a good picture of a day in the life of Our Life After Brain Injury. I did have a wee cry when my husband was asked if he could look after our Grandchild and he said yes then asked alone and he said no! They asked why and he said I am not allowed to I think its because I can get frustrated and things irritate me very quickly.
Anyway not giving up just yet and I have to say my husbands Welfare Officer has been great.
