I've just been throwing away some paperwork relating to my son's benefits in 2010, he is in receipt of DLA and IS and was given a cold weather payment.

No cold weather payment in my area Image though heating on and the pair of us are sitting with fleeces wrapped round us - bring on the menopause!

I once worked in an office with 2 menopausal women, one had hot flushes, the other cold flushes, so depending on whose symptoms were uppermost, we alternately boiled or froze Image Image

You really don't want the menopause, just Damart thermal undies instead!

Its just another complication, another variable, in what is already a stifling straight-jacket of financial support, with rules that appear to benefit the paid staff rather than the recipients. How many hoops are we supposed to jump through for our pittance, before we break free?
