Thank you. I was turned down before, but things have deteriorated since, and I couldn't cope without dh. Today he has helped me to the toilet and back.

Go to the welfare support officer at your local council.
They will word the form for you, as it's a nightmare.
I got my DLA no problem, but because I had her help filling it in.
Good luck smile

I have been stuck in bed almost all week and the doc thinks that, rather than "just" teitzes, I have fibromyalgia as well. I cant fill a kettle, I struggle with cutting food and opening jars/bottles. I am also unable to walk further than a mile. bearing in mind that 6m ago I walked the 10 miles to wales and back.

dh is at home with me, but not getting any financial help. I receive incapacity benefit at higher rate, with disability element. is there anything I should know?
