Am I entitled to a blue badge?
I am new to this group.
I have not been officially declared as disabled, however I have so many pains now I feel disability is what I have. My hips are arthritic (amongst other conditions) and my doctor says it's mild (not that it feels it). I am not sure if I'd be entitled to any of the benefits as I do work and do full time earning probably far too much for anything. I was wondering if anyone in this site can help advise me or point me in the right direction for advice on whether or not I'd be entitled to at lease a blue badge?
I'm finding walking, even a gentle walk after 10 minutes one side of my hip starts to ache and then after a further 20 mins the other side aches. The pain then escalates there after until I've rested it. Stairs cause me pain after the first few steps. I do find it wears on me quite a bit and doesn't help my depression. Having asthma doesn't help either it's exercise induced and I feel like I have to work harder to walk through the pain and can sometimes if on an incline get my asthma to start to. I feel like my body is falling apart. I do walk and will walk despite the pain. and therefore I remain mobile
All guidance appreciated.
