Won my appeal today

dafflover Member Posts: 7 Connected
It has taken me over a year but today I won my appeal. Have gone from lower rate mobility and no daily living allowance to the enhanced rate for both (I was previously on higher rate mobility and lower rate daily living when I was on DLA) .

It has been very stressful and at times I have felt like giving up but with all the support I have had from my family and the Scope website I  now have the award I knew I was entitled to. I would say to anyone who is going through this awful process keep going !!!

It is daunting being in front of 3 people you don't know and having to answer questions about your disability and how it affects you,  but I found them  to be very fair and I was able to overcome my nerves and give a good account of the difficulties I have.
