Friend & I waiting on back dated SDP premium

A friend of mine like me is waiting on a decision from DWP about backdated money he was owed. We are both on ESA. He is on IR & I CR. 
Every Christmas time he would get a grant then in later years a loan which he used to buy presents and one time to have a sunshine holiday. The reason I sound bitter is that we both migrated to ESA from IB. He to IR & me to CR. All those years he not only got more per wk than me but I couldn't get get grants or loans and I tried. I lived in some hovels sometimes with no heating or a bed.
Now while I wait on them getting back about SDP I am so annoyed that I will never get a grant or loan money I desperately needed. 
I know some will think I'm acting intitled but I worked 20 yes before I became unable to work. Seems their mistakes really did major harm.
