      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.
      I’m 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

                            If you can ask the hospice Denise;

                            I know, for many it's a daunting place but don't look at the title, a hospice is normally about living your life as best as you can, thus making the most of it.

                            You can go and see, like most things they don't force you. They are normally used to dealing with us and offer another set of OT's, Physio's, etc.

                            You could also ask your doctors as they might have some ideas. Mnda connect could also probably get someone around to help you.

                            Remember, when filling in any forms to put your worse day down and not your advantage one.

                            Missed you yesterday but I do understand.

                            Love Terry

                                Yes I did see you both there Denise;

                                I was so lucky to get it when I did as it's really given me some independence. It is not right for everyone but it is for me. Not the most comfortable chair and not so good on uneven stuff.

                                How was your specialist.

                                Love Terry
