i won my dla appeal and tribuanal 2 years ago , low care ,however i felt it was a good start they actual y accepted i need help and yes you have guessed it i am up for renewal in feb 2013 so i recieved my forms and the gp care advisor came to my home and completed them with me that was 29th oct and yes uve guessed it i got them back to day i have been awarded LOW CARE for a year, now i dont wish to seem ungrateful but how do they deem this when our disease is sooo complexed like many of you i have SCLE with a crossover of SLE and the "norm" raynaulds/syjorns/copd/ibs/fatigue/insomnia/cluster headaches to name but a few, so lupie people please can you help ???
Do i ask for them to look at my claim again (and they say i may loose low care if they change there minds) or do i just except and plod along, but it just seems sooo wrong , i have worked full time for 28 years ,11 of them i went undiagnoised my work collegues used 2 joke and call me sick note as i WAS ALWAY s ILL , i just feel like we are pienilized for"having CAUGHT " lupus as people seems to think thats how it appears, i dont know if ive any fight in me or whether my brain is up to any paper work , i have a 15 son with aspergus and have been a lone parent since he was 5 months old , to be honest i take then 0ne hundred and odd tablets a week so i can be around for him being a teenager is hard enough without having aspergus and a mum with lupus, but i say a laugh a day keeps lupus at bay and we do laughwhich is good as it takes my mind off the pain for 5 mins , sorry getting back to the question do i phone the dwp or do i ask the advice of the assessment technician that is comingon monday from social care ????? please help
