Hi all I do get DLA and yes it took a long time, and many appeals.
I too have SLE, discord lupus, lichen planus of the mouth and spinal problems to mention a few but the first bit of advise I was given and pass on to all is DO NOT tell them about good days, remember every day is a bad day, also not what you can do but what you can't do, if you have a partner get them to write how much they need to do to help you, and how much you can't do yourself and need help with ie bathing without help, dressing, moving around in the house because of pain in feet leg's spine ie I can't put socks on, or shoes that aren't slip ons.And I can't go out without help. Please do not let pride get in the way of being honest. I hope this helps some and good luck to all. xx
