I decided I would apply for DLA. I don’t expect to get it and if I do only the lower care element but my question is…Do they not need to know about work? I do only work 2 hours 5 days a week bbut doesn’t seem to ask anywhere about this.
I have been very honest i answering all of the questions but it’s quite hard to get your point across in the allocated questions. How do you explain to someone that your body can be so fatigued that you literally can not get out of bed and that some days it takes you 2 hours to get from your bed to actually being washed and dressed downstairs! This is only due to the fact you have a 2year old and if you didn’t have them you would just stay in bed as its easier.
Also I have leg weakness in my right leg. It is fine when walking around the house but if I try and walk to the corner shop, by the time I get to the end of my drive it goes so “weak”, “tingly” and like jelly that I have to stop and hold on to something. It just all sounds so stupid and very very hard to explain in English.
Sorry I sort of went off on a rant but it’s just all so frustrating.
