I have only just found this as well. One of the first answer things to learn is that you answer all questions from your worst day experiences. Sorry forget all self pride. If on your worst day you cannot cook a meal say no, Poper cooking that is, microwave meals dont count. if you cannot go out say no, if you gat confused when you are bad, you sayyou need someone to guide you to your destination and to see you safely across the roads.etc. always answer from a worst day or night point of view, but dont over egg it.Does anyone here get DLA and how easy was it to get this????
An aquaintance of mine, with a beautiful house and plenty of money but knows how to work the system has decided shes going to stop work and go on benefits (sickness) They also applied for a council bungalow and been approved on prioroty! Yet he walks every day carries shopping back , does all the housework and heavy gardening. Dont get me wrong he is ill but not that bad. They have been turned down for DLA b4 but now an housing official has said they can fill it in for them.
When i asked why they wanted a small flat she said 'oh i dont i want the money from my house then i can spend 6 months of the year on holiday. I know i shldnt be bitter cos they have both worked hard in there lives, but this is not the reason the system works for
