    Hi all i need some serious advice please.
    I have got my DLA review forms today so ive made an apt to go to welfare rights because they won my appeal for me.
    Im sure it will all be ok i hope & pray it will.
    I need to know how many illnesses there are for CFS patients & FMS patients.
    So that welfare rights can list them on my form.
    May god bless you & yours.

    Hi am new to this, have just been told that i have Fibromyalgia,and my daughter is filling out the forms for me, they need to know a lot don't they, we have not completed filling it out yes, i am 60 years old and am just getting my head around all this.

    good luck with your forms you have to know the system & how to fill the forms in.
    When they ask how does your illness affect you in your daily life you say you cant walk any distance without severe crippling agony.
    You fill the forms out & tell them you have no good days that is the right answer.
    They ask you can you cook get dressed go to the toilet & have a bath or shower you say you need someone to help you do all those things.
    I hope this helps good luck with your claim.
    If you ever need anymore advice im only to happy to help.
    May god bless you & yours.

    Ah I hate those forms!

    One more thing I would tell you to add is if you were issued a handicapped parking permit because they will see that they RMV recognizes you as disabled or if you use the aid of something like a cane or one of those carts even occasionally or you have to take frequent stops for rest.

    just a thought.
    Hugs and good luck,
