Fighting the System

One thing that really frustrates me is that whenever I try and help myself, I find myself banging my head against a brick wall. Just some examples:

If I want a simple referral to a consultant, I seem to have to jump (well, stumble!) though a million hoops first.

I have been waiting over 18 months – not even counting the waiting list for Social Services first – for a disabled bay to be put in, and it’s still not done.

I was given a wheelchair on the NHS that didn’t fold, so I couldn’t really use it properly as it was such a nightmare to get in and out the car.

I have been turned down for Disability Living Allowances twice at Tribunal level, despite lots of medical evidence. (This will be detailed in another post, as I have lots to say about that!)

The council ‘band’ people in categories in order to be eligible for housing. I have been put in a crap band that means I’ll never be able to move , even after an appeal twice now, and have called my medical conditions minor.

I try my best to work, even though it almost kills me to do so, and it’s the reason why some people don’t think I’m as bad as I am.

Okay, just feeling a bit frustrated at the moment!
