  2. My son went through a 15 month assessment process which was highly stressful for him before being diagnosed with #autism for #myDLA
  3. After one assessment, the assessor wrote down the wrong distance I could walk & #myDLA was stopped. It took a year of appeals to reinstate..
  4. #myDLA My condition is progressive and won't get better. I Paid NI & tax when I worked so DLA is NOT FREE! Took me 18 months to get it after
  5. #myDLA for Nate is not 'just because I filled out a form' but because he is at risk of sudden death and requires overnight home ventilation
  6. Ignore tabloid lies like today's Daily Mail and read the #myDLA hashtag for real picture: DLA is about independence not benefit scrounging
  7. I have a genetic inherited progressive incurable neuromuscular disease #myDLA the clue is in the diagnosis waste of money retesting
  8. independence can be reading your own post,cooking a meal unaided etc,though this govt want to penalise independent disabled,shameful #myDLA

  21. #myDLA My Son grew from an autistic child into an autistic adult. That how these incurable things work you see. DLA allows him independence.
  22. #myDLA was *refused* without an atos medical - and then reinstated at appeal, still without an atos medical.
  23. #myDLA awarded because of evidence on my forms from my NHS and social services professionals. Why should they need atos medical as well?
  24. #myDLA was cut off because being periodically unable to communicate or cross a road safely was deemed fine at my last DLA review.
