Before i went thru the STRESSFUL AND EMOTIONAL FORM FILLING AND HOME VISIT, I was awarded DLA for life..after home visit..I was awarded 12 points in total..£22 a week!!
I asked for case management to look at my case again..this time with a 3 page NEW DOCTOR'S REPORT..I WAS EVENTUALLY AWARDED 12 points mobility and 10 for daily living! I'm still..altho GREATFUL..for 22 points..but I would like to appeal and ask the tribunal..that if..as my Dr had stated..I will never work again and my illness is debilitating and joints disintegrating.. Y DO I HAF TO DO THIS IN ANOTHER 20 MONTHS? I WONT BE ANY BETTER..WORSE IN FACT..AND MY STANDARD OF LIVING DAY TO DAY WILL PROBABLY HAVE GONE MORE DOWN HILL THAN IT IS NOW!!! I FEEL SICK ALREADY..
HOW DO I VOICE THIS IN TERMS THAT THE 'APPEALS BOARD' WILL UNDERSTAND?
I no out ther, ther r people..o so worse than I.. but the stress of it hanging overhead..is making me PHYISICALLY ILL! X

    hi Grateful and welcome

    The DWP have the right to reassess at any time.  It is unlikely that an appeal will change the length of your award and even if they do the DWP can still reassess when they want

    Hi @Grateful01 and welcome to the community.
    I am very sorry to read of your difficulties and the levels of stress and anxiety you are experiencing. Believe me, you are not alone.
    I would 100% rely on @CockneyRebel's advice.
    In the meantime, would it help to talk to others on here about the stress and anxiety you're feeling? You have found a safe place here and are among friends, so please don't be shy of telling us about yourself or of asking any questions. The better we get to know each other, the easier we may find ways to be of use to you.
    Do let me know if you have any difficulty getting around the site.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
