Lol, I ment lower rate mobility.
The way DLA works is odd. I think it can depend on who looks at the forms aswell, can be quite unfair.
I need to fill in my DLA forms myself but the way they word it makes it hard to answer most of the questions....
Scares me, & I get all confused.
Actually I've not heard of anyone getting one but not the other. I'm not sure with your condition how you'd answer the mobility questions, but if you get confused & wonder round then I'm pretty sure you should be getting mobility too.
I've got epilepsy & I know lots of others with epilepsy receive DLA. Some of them get high rate for both & some low rate for both. The ones that got high rate tend to be those who got help from cab, & the majority of them appealed after being refused.
I was always told to fill in the forms an a bad day.
need help with things such as washing, dressing, eating, getting to and using the toilet, or communicating your needs
need supervision to avoid you putting yourself or others in substantial danger
need someone with you when you are on dialysis
or be unable to prepare a cooked main meal for yourself then your entitled to the care component.
You don't need to have these problems every day though.
To get higher rate you must need help on numerous occasions throughout the day.
If you get confused sometimes & need assistance outdoors then you should get mobility too. You don't actually have to have assistance to get the benefit though.
There's loads of help groups for filling out DLA though, just have a browse online. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links but try looking up 'rights to benefits' on google. Hope it helps.
Blimey, sorry about the essay
