Hi Guys,

I have my hearing tomorrow and I must admit Im not looking forward to it!

I feel like Im on trial for something and I wish it was tuesday!

Anyone had a tribunal for DLA and how did you cope?

I have no idea what to expect as never had to do this before so wish me luck and throw in some strength too!!

I had a DLA tribunal, you and your representative come in by one door the tribunal people come in by another door, theres this big wooden table seperating you.

The first thing they said was "You haven't been in hospital for a long time" i said "I've got a friend telling me to come off the drugs and go into hospital for the money and the help and if this goes on much longer i just might do that"

It was a majority decision which means 2 out of 3, it's worrying if i'm called in again as if one decides otherwise i'm in trouble, still wonder who was against it

Hi Guys and thank you all for your support and good wishes.

It was horrible!!!

I was told I would get the decision in the post today and guess what??? Nothing! So hoping the postie will bring me news tomorrow!

How do all the people who are not genuine manage to get it and yet those of us who truly do need it have to battle and just about go with a begging bowl!!!

I dont know.............

Jibbz remember that even first class mail isn't a guaranteed delivery and it can take up to nine days to arrive. They may not send it first class if it's not considered urgent (and that's their judgement of it not mine).

Try and let go a little till you get the letter. Don't make yourself ill over something that you ultimately can't control. I know that's easier to say than do and I find it difficult to put into practice when my own reviews come up.

Meanwhile, if positive thoughts can help I'm sending them by the bucket load. :hug:

I got the results straight away after the tribunal, they told me i was getting it 2 yrs backdated so as the tribunal was at Tottenham Court Road i went to an expensive shop in the rags i'd worn and bought a computer and stereo, they thought i'd stolen the card, i had to speak to the bank

Well done so far

Well done for getting this far- sounds daunting- so be proud of yourself if you can.
Good wishes are still valid for you for a while yet- but also sending a hug to tide you over though! :grouphug:
