Well, I had my tribunal on Thursday, extremely stressful, a friend went with me and I couldn't have managed otherwise. I felt that they did treat me fairly, listened and asked reasonable questions, and gave me time- I was in there over an hour.
The envelope came today, and I was shaking so much I could hardly open it, but I did and they have agreed I qualify for standard rate care, not for mobility. This is such a relief, confirming that I'm not a liar, or a cheat, and best of all it means I can manage, I can work for the number of hours I can manage without collapsing, and have enough money to survive. Feel I will sleep properly tonight for the first time in months. Now, my only worry is that DWP might challenge the decision and take it to level 2 tribunal. For me that would be the end, really I couldn't carry on with more of this. Just hope they accept the decision, and let me go on living
