Hi minnie! I too am reapplying for DLA. My condition has worsened so much. I am however a bit apprehensive. Some years ago I recieved it for something else. I reapplyed because yet again my condition had worsened. It was clear from my new form compared to my old one that things were different Ie alot worse but they didn't even keep it the same they actually cut it it a level. I guess you just don't know till you try. I too go by total honesty and just say how it is also does my GP. Good luck hun and keep us posted. Abbie X

ive just re applied for my dla too.... so good luck all...Minnie do u take MTX etc? anti TNF meds? its unfair that your flre ups last that long, mind u, I remember when mine did too, few years back now....im sure u will get it x if u have to appeal, or go to a tribunal, dont let it put u off at all....been to one, they were helpful to me, and cld see I was bad, also via the letters and ops ive had, I do know one thing tho, if u r on MTX and the Anti TNF medfs, they seem to see that ur a bad case!.....good luck Jill

Subject: Re: DLA

LOL V, I only go in luxury, it is possible ya know, find the right site, our site has taken us 3 years to get on it, the showers and shops etc are all new, and the site is massssshusive! i love that morning smell in the morning that u get with camping, just love it....the great thing agbouyt our new tent i its huge height wise, my fella is 6ft5...and im 5ft9, so the sleeping areas u can stand up in, which is terrific, less stress on back, had tents in the past where u have to crawl out of them, done that many times before and tripped over my bf, crawling over him to get to the loo, fell and got my ass sticking in his face lolol....not a goood look lololol....check out gwitham bay, the beach is all sand, and also mazing rocks(boulders) that stick out of the sand, looks like a beach abroad, infact, altho ive been to greece, portugal, canaries, thisd beach is more gorjus than those ones abroad.......I do love hotels tho.... camping is great tho, without the sprogs lololol
