I applied for DLA in Sept 2012 after a Rheumy nurse told me to put a claim in. Got the usual no so went to Tribunal. Finally after 3 postponed appeals - due to Tribunal wanting more info - I won my appeal on Friday [got HRM and LRC] after being grilled by the panel for over an hour. Been given it until Dec 2015.
Looking forward to backdated money in New Year.
Also been given date in New Year for my [experimental] infusion.
Have a lovely Christmas everyone.
