Uplifting thread looking at the good things that's happened to you since the changes.

This could be a really quiet thread.  :)

Ok I will add as I remember. 

1. Has to be finding this site. Giving me like minded people to talk to, ask questions, share things. The fab staff and the advisors who probably have to read every post and is a busy site. Plus I talk a lot.  ;) 

2. Confidence to tell some people why I'm not working. I talk to anyone and everyone about anything, but not about me. So gradually having been through the pip wash, rinse, spin and spit out system, I worked through the descriptors and actually attempted all of them. It's so easy to write no change, everything applies to me because I was on DLA. So I tested my communication skills. Can I actually do this. 

3. Being entitled to the bus pass, I think someone said it's applies as well but I haven't had confidence to do a train yet. 

If I think of anything else I will add it.
Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.
