Thank You virtualterror
I Hope you are able to get on pension I was originally rejected also then I saw a specialist that helped, I was actually told:
I couldn't get pension because I (at that time)didn't have a definite diagnosis so I had to go on sickness benefit then couldn't stay on that after a little while so next choice was unemployment But I couldn't go on that cos I had to sign a paper saying I was fit for work !
so I was in limbo for a long while by the time I got on pension I had used Every Cent of my savings
I am trying not to stress I think because RA is so changeable you always feel the need to validate yourself. but who knows what will happen now with the change in government I think whoever is in power if they see a way to save a buck they will regardless of who they walk on to do it.
