I have never seen so many lies in my life! 

When I looked at the report I had to double check it had my name on it. I have never seen so many lies in my life!

I scored zero points and lost the money for my carer. They said I go on holidays, can cook meals, bake cakes and enjoy knitting.  They said I was articulate,had good concentration and could express myself well but I don’t see why that matters.  I can’t cook for myself, without help I only eat sandwiches, yoghurt and cereals. I have not had a hot meal for months now. My kitchen is tiny I can’t go in with my wheelchair,  I can only stand for a minute or two just the time to grab something from the fridge.  I have not had a proper bath for months, I use a sponge for the parts I can reach.   I get online shopping as I can’t go shopping for myself for as long as I can pay  for the internet, then I will starve. Even online shopping is a struggle,  I need to put things in the kitchen, it normally takes me the entire day, one thing at the time, 20 minutes rest and then another one.

My family lives the other side of the country and we are not on very good terms, I can’t ask them.  I need a new wheelchair but forget it now, I can hardly eat.
As I scored zero points the council cannot help me, I am no longer classified as disabled in their eyes.
I think we are doomed.  Nobody cares about us disabled. I am appealing at the tribunal but it is a 18-24 months wait here, what shall I do in the meantime?
