The Fear of the Unknown

Here in the UK as a disabled person you are supported by the government. Although if you can work in any way that's a bonus. 

In the past people were put on "Disability living allowance" which was assessed but maybe not as strictly as now.

However I have had cerebral palsy from birth, and it won't change if anything, the effects of the brain damage will worsen as I age not get better.

So the fact that I am to be assessed to see how it effects my day to day life, is a scary thought.

I had been given "disability living allowance" for life because of the condition but because of the change in the way the government has changed the system I am to be assessed.

The anxiety of this situation is the worst I've ever had because this is my life that someone has control over financially. I'm so scared because I don't want to lose it all.

The feeling of not knowing what is going to happen.

To be honest I'm so scared I'm afraid of how we are going to cope if our finances are cut too much. 

So please excuse me for posting erratically for a while as first of all I have the assessment then I won't know anything from two weeks to three months later. 

I will post after the assessment to say how it went but not much as I will be worn out. 

Love & Peace
