    Hi @Jane1982, and a warm welcome to the community.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, and I'm sorry to hear this. Just to clarify, did you send your letter from your GP about your struggles leaving the house to the DWP? 

    The process can seem scary and overwhelming, but you're among friends here. We have some brilliant community members and advisors who know about the process themselves, who will hopefully be along to advise shortly. Please do keep us updated in the meantime.

    Did you send the letter to the DWP or not? When I was filling out the paperwork for the first time I included reports from his doctors and therapists involved. Also I made sure I answered everything in a lot of detail. Please keep us updated.
