    Sometimes it is difficult to be honest with people about how we are feeling, we often develop this natural instinct to reply "I'm fine" when someone asks how we are or try to show we are managing...

    In regards to "other people you live with" it doesn't really apply to people you are house sharing with as they do not form part of your household. There is a commercial contract in place (i.e a...

    Heres a link to rightsnet in which welfare rights advisors were discussing the same problem. It's not as though GPs have the time to trawl through documents in order to find the one passage buried in...

    I must say there is a massive variation in both the assessors and buildings used for assessments, some which are unnecessarily cruel and others who are extremely sympathetic! One place I went had...
