  1. "I was told today that they would not do a recalculation just because I had requested it". Had to laugh at this as it is just another fine example of the CSA giving contradictory information. I was told that that was the ONLY way they would do a recalculation as in, only if I HAD requested it!! I know it's an aged post but how did you get on? I am in the process of having a recalculation done, well, I say in the process of....I have requested it but they have got to get hold of him etc even though he never answers his phone, replies to letters etc and he even pays via deduction of
  2. Hi, I'd like to change my User name as it seems outdated now (I'm through the worst!) and was told this was the place to go?? Can someone help me with this? Many thanks
  3. Hi Mich, how did you get on with the home visit? Let us know when you can. xx
  4. Hi Mich, It's nothing to worry about, they sent a lady out to me for a home visit the first time applied. She was lovely and just chatted to me. I ended up getting more funding than I originally applied for as I had just bought a new Dyson and they refunded my money for it so chances are they will do the same with the washing machine that you paid for. As I said, the lady was really lovely and helpful and asked me if there was anything else I needed or wanted and even made a few suggestions herself so don't be afraid! I've only applied for funding once after that and that was
  5. Hi Devonguy, was just wondering how you are getting on with Lowells - I too have an issue with them! Give us an update when you can. x
  6. Brilliant news Mich and very well deserved - like Dave says, get on to the Family Fund now and get the extra help you need. If you don't need anything material, apply for a little holiday for you and the kids - the break will do you good and is well justified. xxx:D
  7. Ok Mich, it's the night before the tribunal. Get your list ready and do what you gotta do tomorrow. Good luck, will be thinking of you tomorrow and don't forget to post as soon as you can to let us know of the outcome. xxx
  8. Hey, we aim to please! Explaining it to a tribunal is not going to be difficult - just tell them your average day or should I say, your average worst day coz from my experience the bad days far outweigh the good days. You were saying about your son nearly losing his fingers by rubbing them along the carpet - I am constantly in fear of my daughter losing her fingernails as the skin around them is so loose - her hands are that of a 90 year old woman and yet she's only 11. We've been there believe me! I have to say the wallpaper thing has gone with me. My daughter stopped stripp
  9. Good call re: the rabbit!;-) Mine's never brought in fish either, never thought about that before! I've also had the voles, a HUGE rat (and he thought he was actually going to bring it in - caught him at the window though:lol:), but no bats - as yet! My daughter doesn't seem to be affected by cat fur or most dogs but for some reason spaniels bring on her asthma and aggravate her eczema which is ever present anyway. Nerves holding out - just. Hoovering, well what can I say, I've knackered that many Dysons - who says they live forever Mustn't forget the constant changing of t
  10. He he Emma, makes a change from mice - having said that I've even had rabbits! xxx
  11. Good luck Mich, will be thinking of you on the 8th. Just remember, tell it like it is and then some! Am off now to hoover my daughters bed and floor again - you know how it is! xxx
  12. Arrrrrrrghhhhhhh. Been there regarding the 'model' behaviour at school - my daughter seems to behave herself at school too. Can I ask if you have seen a Paed Consultant regarding his behaviour yet? I was lucky as I 'fast-tracked' and to be honest they are not much help but it is handy as a professional name to put down when applying for DLA but..... I know it is notoriously difficult to get a referral. We moved from the area we were living in and I was told that there is no funding for child mental health in my new area - along with a lot of other areas - consequently she does not see a co
  13. Thinking about it, I applied to the Family Fund for assistance before getting the DLA award notice. The FF requested a letter of support from my daughter's GP who duly obliged and the request was granted. If you haven't applied already, go for it.
  14. Hi Mich, Reading your first post - well I was nearly in tears. I could have written this myself. My daughter has had chronic eczema from the age of 6 months - she is now 11. At the age of 3 I/she was appointed a home visiting eczema nurse (EN). It was only then that I was told about claiming DLA. The EN gave me the application booklet (War and Peace or what!), helped me fill it in and then completed the statement near the back of the book. The EN's advice to me was when filling in the form, make it look as bad as you can - not difficult as it was/is bad. The form was then sent off. M
