So braved it and took a rare trip out with hubby to the Council Offices. He loves to save money and he read on the internet because I was registered "disabled" on an enhanced level I could get a free bus pass. The woman at the council office read my whole assessment and said. You can't have a bus pass because you do not have a disability. Why don't you drive? Hubby started to explain to her about triggers and hyper-vigilance. I stopped him and said never mind. Put my shaky hand out for my papers. Let's face it (the woman said) You got here so there is nothing wrong with you. I had to walk out left hubby in there getting the papers together. There was no way that ignorant bitch was going to see me crash. I didn't even want the f***ing bus pass. Anyone else feel invisible. Also been told self harm is attention seeking behaviour. My hubby Lee is a hard working manual labourer always says I am way too brainy for my own good. But he is so clued up about PTSD and adorably understanding. I haven't asked him yet what he said to the woman when I left but his face was a bright red and it always does that when he is angry.
