    Hi Cadbury,

    You can challenge their refusal but as Terry said get someone to help with the form. My local hospice did mine.

    It annoys me that some bureaucrat sits in an office, having absolutely no idea of how MND affects us and simply adds up points from a questionaire to determine qualification for a benefit we are all entitled to grrrrrrrrrrrr.
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!

    Hi Cad Unfortunately you need to swing the lead a bit. Exaggerate your condition like how many times you've fallen over. A bit of sadness and depression is always good. Read all this thread , Jock gives some good advice, as always , about not being able to walk 20 yards unaided, Maybe ask OT for a rolllator to 'show' progression of illness. Good luck. Dude

    Hi Cadbury (Cad doesn't work). I bet you're not sleeping well and are down a lot,maybe get GP to prescribe anti-depressant and sleepers. Get all the ducks in a row. To be fair to assessors they will put down what they see and hear. They are working to guidelines. Dude

    Hi Dude
    Can't do it I'm afraid (stubourn and pig headed ) I just think anyone diagnosed with MND should be entitled to all the help going , but thank you for the advice
