I joined a month or so back, so about time to say "Hi"
Now then, I have a question. I retired 20 plus years ago due to spinal disease. Since then I have been living on a part-pension, and Incapacity benefit (or whatever they call it now) Plus DLA.
Every time I report some deterioration in my condition, ATOS/DWB have taken it as a reason either to cancel all my benefits, or to insist on a Fresh Claim, which they then refuse.
Three times they have tried. Three appeals. I'm still on my Benefits! I won, hands down, every time.
Now, some four or so weeks ago, a Neurologist Consultant told me I had Parkinson's. As well as degenerative spinal disease.
Ha, now isn't life juts a bowl of crackers!
Anyhow, here's my question. Do I tell the dear old DW&B about the Parkinson's like a good boy should, or do I just ignore it all? After all the original condition that my claim is based on still stands, I just happen to have PD on top, that's all. So .... ??
Sleeping dogs, and all that, maybe? Or Not?
Did I remember to say HI?
