I actually did put a request on for a telephone hearing because many days I can't even take a step. However a couple days ago I have been asked to attend on 16th Nov! Bit shocked how soon - did not explain why my request was declined. I will now therefore have to hire a wheelchair in case I am unable to move on that day. Does anyone know where I can hire a folding wheelchair please?

Thanks x

hi there,
yes i had tribunal yesterday the 9th was brought forward 2 days ,, i won the appeal ,,got awarded standard on daily and mobility , my anxiety was terrible managed to go outside into taxi and got there about 1.55 ,,was greeted at entrance by the clerk she was very nice lady, i was shaking uncontrolably and crying avin panic attack u name it so was given a private roon to sit in and she explained what would happen etc ,wasnt 5 min there and she came to get me ,,i could hardly walk for shaking so much and eyes were streaming with tears,, the panel were very friendly explained who they were and that they would be asking questions etc and if i feel its too much it fine if i need a break ,offerd me glass of water and give me a box of tissues ,,it realy wasnt that scary as ide imagined ,the dr was the one firing the most question but i just answerd honestly best i could some question were silly realy ,,like asking me if i could maybe manage to go down the beach on a nice day in car with my frind that was with me ,,considering ime agrophobic and am terrified to leave my front door i found this a bit of a pointless question ,so i replied ,,, ide love nothing more than to be able to do that but getting me as far a my front door causes me overwhelming pycological distress ,think by me actualy going there in person did help my case because they could actualy see how distressed i was throughout the whole hr i was in there,. i know you are probably terified of going like i was ,but honestly it isnt as bad as i imagined it to be , very nerveracking yes, but just keep telling yourself this is something you are entitled to and should be awarded it , tell them how you feel emotionaly as well as physicaly day to day ,dont feel you have to rush to answer question take your time ,they might repeat same question in a different seranio ,again just answer honestly even if its the same reply as u give before ,i hope it goes well for you ,where all routing for you to get a good result ,do keep in touch and let me know and msg me anytime as i know a million things go around your head before having to go, ty not to worry too much know it easier said than done but think possitive thoughts ,,
warm wishes ,
alison,x
