TOPIC: A nice brown envelope ...

A nice brown envelope ... 7 years 8 months ago #77516

  • Eddie
After waiting all these months it dropped like a feather onto my mat ...so, okay, it was more like a dull thud, but at last I can get ready for my DLA Tribunal. First things first I phoned my WRO who never answered my call, so I left it in case he was interviewing another. After two hours I called the CAB X-directory and was told he called in sick ... :dry: But the woman said his Supervisor would call back after writing up her last clients meeting. :) So I wait. It means far more than any money to me and my partner to get this done in my favour as I hardly ever go out these days, as it is a major chore just to get onto ground level, not having any lifts. :woohoo: Next month is welcome more now, but I still wait on Neurology for an appointment, as I have developed double vision now, and the Doctor in Hospital said it is the muscles in my right eye that are not working any more :huh: Very easy for me to fall over now :blush: Will let you people know how it all goes of course, and good luck all round from me to you ... Eddie. :kiss:

:( G'morning all. Well, yesterday was the day I had been looking forward to for nigh on a year, and I must say it didn't go as I thought it would. :angry: Got the letter this morning with a flat "no" on it. In one way I am glad it is over but, the strange thing is I am still in loads of pain and my breathing is still pretty bad too, not to mention other things, and no appointment from Neurology. :blink: And to think not so long ago I was one of those paying many hundreds of £££'s in taxes. :dry: To pay these people? This was already agreed before we went into the room and hit me more or less straight away by their attitude ..." holier than thou " one. Course I wont give up that easily, I am more angry having paid into the system thousands of £'s over the last 43 years to have this. I will get my eye sorted out and then back for the jugular!! ;) If I don't leave this world first! Be well everybody, and good luck! I do feel for all going through the ESA nightmare as well ... :woohoo:

My partner is far more angry than I am, and was wondering what my Doctor will say when I inform him, as he did me a very supportive report and they are more or less calling HIM a liar too by a refusal.

Am now getting streams of e-mails of friends and family asking how can it be so? Maybe someone has told the tribunals to start refusing more than not? I don't trust any of them, never have, never will ..

And now a question .... will I get a detailed reason as to why I was refused, or do I need to request it?
