How it all started

Since I have been disabled since 1999 and I would like to get more active but if I start going out I am likely to lose my DLA. So according to the government if I walk 20 yards I am not disabled. Where is the sense in that. They tell you to be active but you dare not because of losing your disablement benefit.

What I did to try to overcome it

I have not taken any steps to address this as I am frightened of doing so

How it made me feel

It is very frustrating as I would like to be more active but you are fighting a losing battle with this government!

The outcome

No it's just impossible to even try because of losing your disablement benefit!

Final thoughts

This government has no interest in helping anyone who is disabled all they are interested in is featuring their own nest!
