Hi NHShater

Its a shame that the bus companies and car producers don't think a little more about people with difficulties walking.

Spot on Chris and well said.
Thanks Chris

I will be looking into this and am now waiting for them to come and re assess my wife. Its nice to know that there are people out there who understand.

Thanks AyJay

That is very helpful to us.
My wife, who has severe M.S. is now expected to pay nearly £400 per month towards her direct payment, which is more than she gets in her own care component of DLA. Is this correct and do others have high costs towards their care. It is a big shock to pay so much, but i do agree that some should be p...
