Well i finally got around to filling in and sending my dla form off though i did need help from my key worker to fill it in (i hate forms of any sort), so all i have to do is wait to here anything. Does anyone know how long it may take before i hear anything.

You'll get a letter in a couple of weeks to say they have your application.
I've applied twice now.Got a decision after about 6 weeks in both cases.
I hope you do better than I did.I have schizophrenia,depression ,anxiety and panic attacks.They wont give me a penny.

Why wont they give you anything - do you have money already and does that have to be declared? Its astonishing that you are not entitled.

I've got a letter somewhere.Apparently I'm not disabled enough to qualify.I dont have any money.
I got my CPN to help with the form the 2nd time.
If you want any money from the bastards then you have to exaggerate to the point of lying.Something which I intend to do when I apply for the 3rd time.

exagerrate to the point of lying, they asked me at the tribunal whether what i was saying was the truth i said "What is truth" my opinion is these things aren't written on stones brought down from mount sinai they're the way you interpret your condition, sadly with the benefit lot you have to lay it on with a trowel, it's not the way you'd like those close to you to see it

The other side is could you support yourself by working
