    Hi yes I  am in the process of waiting for my tribunal date had assessment in 2017 December, I rang the tribunal centre to ask what are the wait times for my area and they said 36 weeks - I am now down to about 28 so that makes it December/ January 2109 for my appeal! It is terrible when you had a DLA lifetime award and all the lies they tell on your assessment. They said I did not agree to my past claim being considered when the DLA rang me and asked that question I said they could! It is just so flawed and wrong what they are doing and we the vulnerable of society are paying the price. Sorry rant over just so stressed too and so long to wait I have just applied for my medical records from my GP as they won't do a letter unless asked by the DWP. Argggh

    Hi @elbest
    its too much this wait! Best thing to do is reach out for help everywhere. GPs/Doctors, Advice centres etc.
    hope it helps you though.

    Sorry to hear that Waylay I know what you mean about Mental Health it really does take a nose dive. I collapsed/ blacked out this morning & ended up in A&E due to one of my conditions I think - I now feel drained & weak it will take me a week to recover but DWP would probably say there's nothing wrong!!!

    And posters on here have suggested that I was so wrong to give up the fight after the DWP refused to change the decision on a MR. I just couldn't face the thought of the stress involved.
