I have noticed recently on this forum that DLA has come up a few times. I do get DLA, only the low rate of care component. I even stood in front of a tribunal to fight my corner.
At the moment I am working with a psychologist as I am having problems that I mentioned in a previous post/tread. As well as already having WG, It's suspected that I have Aspergers. My psychologist has already said that I should be entitled to a higher rate of DLA. My fears are that I don't want to go through what I did last time. The good thing this time around is that I will have some support.
I do feel for other vasculitis sufferers whom have issues with claiming DLA. It just doesn't seem fair, the stress this causes, especially when a person/s is already going through such anguish because of their chronic illness.
