Big mistake

15 years ago when applying for DLA i was able to walk berween 20 to 50. Things have got more difficult with extra conditions added on so I only go from front door to car , and from car to appointment now so not sure how far any more. But still tick same box 20 to 50. The assors report says walked 16 yards from waiting room to appointment room, and goggled from where taxi droped my husband and me off to assessment centre approx 60 took 10 mins and two stops. This was done with my husband's support and a Fischer stick for arthritis in my hands. My husband goggled distance out of curiousity and it was only 50.. yards.  I will most likely have to request MR as I can not drive but my husband's has been able to take me to all appointments using my disability car.
