    Hello,

    I am new to this forum. I was just wondering if anyone out there who has Body Dysmorphic Disorder on LCWR? I have suffered from BDD for over 20 years and it has a huge impact on all areas of my life and it’s really debilitating. I also suffer from depression and OCD. I am currently on Universal Credit and after my work Capability assessment, they placed me in the LCW group. I have been unable to work for the past several years due to my BDD. When I asked UC to send me their assessment, I felt that some of it was incorrect. Some things weren’t true. Has anyone out there suffering from BDD to the extent they’re unable to work, challenged a decision (a Mandatory Reconsideration/Appeal) and have been successful?

    Thanks,

    N

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
