DLA form has me sooo panicky.... - May 30th 2012, 04:45 AM

Basically, i filled out a DLA form yesterday. And now i'm so anxious i can't sleep. Just petrified that i've lied in it.

Basically the supporter helping me write it, said you need to say about your worst day. So i did, but that doesn't sum up every day of my life. So it feels like it's not true.

Also- i've very much exagerated the role of my boyfriend as a carer. Is he likely to be contacted- as he's writing the bit about who knows me best. I haven't lied. Again it's just taking the worst day bits. And also things that i need but don't have. Like need someone to get me up in the mornings. I don't have that so i don't get up. So in teh application i put that i need my bf to wake me up each day. Does that make sense. Is it ok?

Also, different professionals know different aspects of my difficulties. And many i told for the first time today. So i'm anxious they'll think i'm making things up.

Does anyone know about the follow up. I'm petrified they'll call me or interview me.

In case you hadn't guessed i'm going for it under anxiety :P

You've done it fine. I was exactly the same when me and my CPN filled it in, it felt like lying because not all days were so bad. But you have to consider that you're applying for it because on your very worst days, you are disabled, mentally. In my case, I forget to take care of myself and can't leave the house. This isn't every day, but it happens frequently and it's debilitating. Don't worry, you're not lying, they expect you to fill in all the honest, miserably gory bits of when you are at your worst.

Good luck with your application, mine was accepted and now I'm using it to pay for Therapy
