Re: [IPk] DLA application



Cheers for the reply Dave and sorry to hear about the poorly toe. I have to
remind myself daily that our NHS system is a hellava alot better than some
countries  we could mention but sometimes it's harder than others :)
I'm quite lucky as I have completed DLA forms for years in my work
(homelessness field) but have not had any experience with diabetes and DLA.
I'm in the process of being moved to part time in my work and possible a
change in job too (disappointing at 28 years old but what can you do?:(
I hope the DLA will open up the benefit system to me, in case of worst case
scenario and I lose my job. However, there were some very strange questions
or at least it seems that way but it is a universal form. The Doctor
apparently didn't even know why I was applying until I told him :)
