    Hi Sian,

    i think the best thing is to get someone from a local charity who deals with the sort of thing to help you. Give them a ring and someone should be able to help you fill in the forms and even attend the assessment with you if you are going alone.

    Hi Sian boqer is right what she says. Go and see CAB. They will help you in every way. And get as much info as you can about your illness  docs appointments. Ect ect. Don't worry yourself as I was in the same percition as you a year ago and CAB were brilliant they did everything for me and won my case for me. Good luck to you and happy new year

    Hi sian I had to the dwp Doctor ask for advice is a good idea but also see if your doctor can give you a letter. Also when you go when they ask you the questions just think about your bad days an how bad you are on them days an tell them. That's what I done hope this helps

    Happy new year kirsty xx
