    • Dx thank you so much for all of your help this year you really are an angel you are a credit to this site and I’m sure 1000’s more would agree with me in saying that you are a perfect example of why nobody should lose hope in humanity the way society is starting to look today. I really can’t find the words to express my gratitude for your gumption. I really can’t apart from say thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
    • In terms of the result, in hindsight, I think that the manifesto possibly went too far.  I think nationalisation of utilities, railways and royal mail is a good thing due to the fact privatisation sucks money out of the system, and things end up being paid for several times over.   I'm not sure nationalisation of BT was such a good thing.  Our network is pretty rubbish and leaving infrastructure projects to private companies is incoherent and inefficient, but that might have been a step too far.   I disagree it's all Corbyn's fault because the Tory's campaigned on a very simple message - "get brexit done".  In effect, their manifesto was very basic, and labour haemorrhaged leave voting labour voters so desperately tired of the process.  There was a hell of a lot of anti Corbyn propaganda from the word go.   I said after the referendum that the Tory's would be screwed because they wouldn't be able to deliver on any of the promises made, and for a long time it looked like that would be the case.  However, I never took into consideration the effect of Boris Johnson would have because he's a very good salesman... I would bet my life on us having a deal by the end of next year, and whatever we're left with will be championed as a massive success... I'm sick of it all if I'm honest.  I've had people banging on about remainers can all shit up now, they lost etc, as if they'd won the lottery.  But when I look at it, it was all still based on nonsense and misinformation, so I think we've all lost.   We're now left with a Tory government that has a huge majority so that they can push through anything they like.  Where's the democracy there?  Leavers wanted more democracy, but Johnson having played a blinder, has secured less democracy and conviced them they're all winners.  Coupled with their promise to "renegotiate the relationship between parliament and the courts" I'm concerned all these leave voters aren't really thinking clearly.  I've also said all along that brexit was about the elite in our country having more overall control, and now they have it.  They've even convinced working class labour voters that it's in their interest.  How did this happen?
    • Hi  Received another scrawled letter this morning ,    just to to inform you that I am still waiting for further instructions from the court.    Please would you you provide me with a copy of my letter, where you have stated In your letter to me , dated 29th November 2019 ,  that my recent letter states I do not wish for you to instruct an expert or make an independent report on our behalf?    You also state that in my letter I also do not want your input in the Instructions letter to the expert.  Please forward a copy of my letter stating this to you.    Please forward where the judge states that I had to forward a written draft letter to you, with the instructions for the expert? Also where it states I needed to send you a copy for you to check to see if it’s appropriate.    Please would you send me the copy of my letter, sent to yourself, where you state , I have written all the above instructions to yourself .    Guessing she’s not kept a copy of the letters she has sent me. Oh dear!     
    • How many more times!!!  It was a global recession!!  Seriously, I feel like I'm in a cuckoo clock.  Answer honestly, surely if the country had been bankrupted the price of food would have shot up and we wouldn't have been able to draw any money out from a cash point?  These things are what I would expect if we had gone under as a country.

DLA reapplication knocked back

I posted a shorter version of this on the disabilities board but thought i'd post here also just in case anyone here could help.

 

Been on DLA for 4 years due to having a condition that's like epilepsy but isn't. I also have a "dyslexia like learning difficulty". I have a pacemaker and work 16 hours a week in a large supermarket that supports me by placing me in the clothing department and making sure i work in a team and, if possible, with the first aider so I get the disabled rate of tax credits.

 

I reapplied for DLA with the new style form and didn't really understand the box system but i gave it my best shot as the CAB in my old area didn't fill in forms. I moved and recently got my knock back in the post. On one page it said that i didn't black out so didn't need accompanied when i'm out and on the other page it said that i did black out but i was aware of danger when i do - i am definately not as i am completely unconcious.

 

I called the DLA helpline and they advised me to go to CAB in my new area, due to their caseload being too big they couldn't help me but they gave me the GL24 form.

 

I called the DLA helpline again and the case is being re-looked at based on details taken over the phone, i also requested that my GP be contacted but as she's a new GP i'm not sure how much use she will be.

 

I realise i'm not at the appeal stage yet but need to know what other organisations can help me with the GL24 and the appeal if needed? I live in West Lothian.

Are they perhaps taking the view that now you have your pacemaker your syncope episodes are few?

no the pacemaker hasn't really helped the episodes at all, it did for the first month or so but that's been put down to the fact that i had nil stress and no life as i was just in my mums house, off work and uni with no big responsibilities. The minute i went back to real life the episodes were back and i was re-medicated so i'm back to the same amount of episodes with the same severity. The pacemaker was never meant to cure anyway but rather give a look in at how my heart has been responding and now it looks like i may have POTS as well because the pacemaker is catching tacchycardia as well as bradycardia episodes which co-incide with my fainting diary.

Bless you are having a rough time of it.

 

I thought your PPM would have been set to override tachys to reduce incidence of fainting. Are your docs doing EPS?

 

I would keep up the battle for DLA, get your cardiologist to support your application.

 

Good luck, hope they get you sorted soon.

No they're loathe to do an EP study because they're convinced that they got all the answers on the tilt table but that was about 5 years ago now. It was an unmedicated tilt so they can't even put the rate drop down to the spray or anything.

 

The pacemaker was always set on preventing brady episodes as it's usually rate drop that causes my syncopes; with the new episodes in mine there's now debate over wether i need a different model but they wont fit one while my scar is still keloid.

Your local council should have a welfare rights officer who will help you with any forms and any subsequent appeal if necessary. I think they are based within the social services department in my area.

 

They do like to fail some cases which are then passed on appeal or review.

Definately approach welfare rights. I know they are very busy and I am being seen middle of november at the earliest just waiting for official app to come through. They are going to help me fiil mine in. But ring now and you shold soon like me get help.

They have even set up another app to help sort out my debts for me as odd phone calls driving me mad. I did pick up they were stressed at fitting everyone in, but thats not knocking them, I can only imagine they must be rushed off their feet at the moment with all the changes and are like most things quickly booked up.

Best wishes
