  • Hope you wil get it. Try to be calm! Wish you all the best!

  • It was stressful enough applying first time around with nothing to loose. Hopefully you kept a copy of the form so you can remind yourself what you wrote. My assessor appeared to be working his way through the form asking additional questions at each section. Good luck and hope it works out for you. Farm

  • How do I get a copy of the form I sent in ??? X

  • I don't think you can get a copy of the form now - I typed up the answers and attached to the form so I had a copy. Perhaps have a look at the descriptors - there is table on the CAB site and make a few comments. My mind seems to go blank in this type of interview situation as it is horrible having to admit how bad you are. As to your comment below - I was crying.. Farm

  • I really feel for you. I am, so far, lucky as my condition is not too severe. It is a disgrace that people who have enough to cope with as it is are put under this unreasonable pressure. How can politicians go on about supporting those who live by the rules when they actively attack the sick and the vulnerable? If ever they talk about understanding disability it is always from the point of view of privilege, where money is no object and there is never any need to worry about how to afford the basics which make life tolerable.

    I am sorry to rant when you are so worried, but I just wanted to offer my support to you and wish you and your family the best. Just think of me as being in your pocket on the day. I will be thinking of you.

  • Aww thanks soooo much Hun I think I'll start crying when they start asking me questions I've even got a starlift installed on Thursday as struggling really badly to get upstairs x

  • Wow that was quick! Let's hope you receive notification of your award as speedily. I can so understand how you're feeling Denise, I had a huge wobble the day before mine & I was a first timer not a re-assessment for changeover as I'd not had DLA. So did you not copy your application form? If not don't worry, I assume you'll be taking someone with you, your partner or someone who knows your difficulties, they'll be able to help if you forget anything I'm sure. I won't lie, it's a reality check but hopefuly it won't get the better of you. You might find this from the Benefits & Work website helpful

    Good luck for Thursday, I'm sure you've nothing to worry about. Let us know how it goes, I'm sure if you want any more experiences of the assessment from those who've already had theirs you'll have lots of replies so don't hesistate to ask. x

  • Was calm for mine and it did me no favours as I got lower level. Was s new application so I didn't lose anything. So if u are panicky and cry its a good thing they put as much store in mental symptoms as physical . Xx good luck
