TOPIC: Decision

Decision 4 years 11 months ago #82690

Well I filled in my form and sent it off just before Christmas last year, today the dreaded brown envelope fell onto my mat.

I let in sit there for a while and then I opened it up with much trepidation, I read down the page and got to the important bit, I had been placed straight into the support group!

No medical, nothing, just straight into the support group!

I have to say that the relief of reading that was immense and I just burst into tears.

If It wasn't for the help of this website and the guides I do not think I would have faired so well, so a big big thank you from me.

Take care,

Keith

Sorry Hardyards, your post wasn't there when I started typing ( with one finger :blush:

Still, two heads are better than one :)

Best regards.
