Hi all, it is without doubt appalling that both dazzambro and oxfordgills have had such bad customer experience ( and that is what most companies like to refer to us as ' customers' ) how on earth can they be taken as professional with such poor communication and attitude I wonder if there is a complaints department ?
It is without question a very stressful process and yes you do feel like you are begging by the end of it all, my claim changing from DLA to PiP was not successful nor was my reconsideration and I will admit I was so angry, upset and bolshy I suppose I though f*** o**.....apologies for such language.
This resulted in the loss of my car which I need to work; so I had to find the money from some where to buy a second hand car (while I waited for the donation from mobility towards another vehicle) and I now have extra outlay with car insurance, tax and up keep of not a new vehicle.
I am struggling to maintain my work role having over the past 10 years dropped from a 36 hr week to just 16hrs. even this now is becoming difficult to maintain but I need to work for financial reasons and also even though for 3 days it is very hard work being ready for a working day in the morning and going to bed for an hour or more at 3pm when I get home because I am so exhausted....but all this said I love my job and the social aspect of it.
I do not receive or believe I am entitled to any other benefit and will admit I did rely on my previous DLA payment each month and the car component was very much appreciated and needed.
I have the past few days retrieved my letters and read them through very thoroughly which I didnt before, my own fault, but the whole process just made me feel so low and worthless that I admit I gave up.
I wish everyone the very best with their applications and I will re apply soon because life is not at its best and my condition is proving quite taxing to say the least at the minute.
I find the whole process so difficult because I will not play the sick role I try the best I can in all that I do even if it is the detriment of my well being, stupid? possibly but I that is who I am, should I not try so hard???I am begining to wonder
