Granted, it took me over a year since getting his DX to actually do the application form for DLA - but I never thought we would get it first time - was sure we would have to appeal.

One less battle to fight, anyway.

Great news!!!!

We got it first time too, and renewed with no arguments either, I was so relieved as I hated doing the forms.

He's got worse since I did the forms grin so he was obviously gearing up for an appeal.

Fab news SSB! (I am Doddle by the way). We have a DX for DS1 now, he has hypotonia and hypermobility, which explains a lot!

Oh my goodness, TCA! I hadn't realised that that was on the cards.

Very pleased for you. We have never had to fight/go to tribunal but I know others who have and it is horrible. Glad this is one less fight to tackle.
