Hi...I have had a blue badge for 3 years since I moved to Devon. I was able to have a telephone interview in which I answered all the questions honestly and didn't have to have a face to face assessment. Now it has come up for renewal and I phoned and went through the up the same questions, my condition is not improved, if anything I have more problems now than before and additional health problems. Anyway, I have now been sent a letter to say I have to go and be assessed by any OT.
I have had active RA for 14 years, with no remission. On methotrexate, Leflunomide and steroids.
I don't claim any benefits, but have found the badge so useful as I can join in so much more with things, even on my worst days. I am worried that I will lose this as if I am seen on a day where I am not struggling so much. Should I ask for a letter of support from GP or rheumatologist? Any advice welcome.
