I Won!!!!

I had my disability tribunal today. I did not even get seen. I won just on the strength of my submissons. The Chairman told my representative that they did not need to see me, they were appalled at the way I had been treated and that the case should never have gone this far. It has taken 22 months. I refused point blank to give in. I even wrote to the Commisioner myself and got the last tribunal's decision set aside.

If I wasn't a cripple, I'd have skipped out of the building! ;-)

Good News. I hope that all things are going to improve from now on. Are you unable to show us pictures of your lovely dogs because you show them, or are you just waiting to be asked??? They sound absolutely gorgeous.
Cheers Gillian
