    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    Adrian, a little about me...what to say?

    I became unwell five plus years ago so an acquired disability I guess. Being ill and the resulting disability isn't great and I'm just learning that while denial is useful it has huge, ginormous flaws.  I'm friendly, outgoing, and obviously a wonderfully, fantastic person ;) although I can't be trusted anymore not to cancel plans.

    Connie00, thank you for the lovely welcome and offer of assistance. I'm going to take you up on that. I don't suppose you could tell me or point me in the right direction of how to delete a post. I managed to post my initial welcome message twice. I'd like to avoid that in the future.

    Thank you all, I appreciate you.

    Thanks for commenting.

    It does seem to take a long time to get things back from the DWP. I hope it all goes well.
