like many on this site I was awarded DLA indefinitley and have now had to reapply by din't of my birthday (3 months outside the cut off) Was told it would be a formality - NOT. Now have an assessment in just over a week and am petrified. Have had 3 of these in my own home over the last 15 years (why don't they just look at previous documents). One was so bad I crawled under the duvet and cried for 3 hours. Here is what has happened in the past - assessment - denied - challenged - reinstated after a whole lot of distress and doctors letters. Not sure I have the energy to go through it again - is this what they bank on? Hubby is just about to go through checks for prostate cancer - my energy should be on that. If I lose my mobility life is going to get even more difficult that it already is. Have just had to come off any antiflammatories due to kidney problems (and that is for life) so, dealing with major increased pain and now this.
?Has anyone had a good outcome with a sympathetic assessor?
By the way are these assessors doctors or tick boxers?
