    Is there anyone with experience of a disability claim in the UK? I am experiencing problems with my employer and their insurers, also with claiming benefits - all are stalling and won't make decisions. I think that this could be a concerted action and an attempt to get me dismissed due to inability to work prior to the latest disability discrimination Act coming into force in October.

    At the moment, I'm in a lose-lose situation, at a time when I can least cope. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who might have experience or know where I can get advice in the UK.

    I don't have any family or other support, and I'm pretty desperate on all fronts.

    If your union representative won't help you, contact your nearest Citizens Advice Bureau. They should help with disability benefits & legal problems with employers. Good luck!
