Welfare Without Funds

I read a disabled bloggers account in the Huffington Post today of the financial hardship disabled people face (Financial Burden of Ill Health). As I indicated the other day, I would give an update on how my reassessed care package is working out for me, as it's directly the cause, along with the bedroom tax, of depriving me of disability income meant to fund all kinds of things as Elaine Benton points to in her article.

Welfare: Mental Health v Physical Health (I am not crazy...)

It's a long time since I posted; I basically lost heart after a care reassessment that wasn't signed off until my books were audited in January. That meant the process took 6 months in total. After that stressful period, extreme fatigue kicked in. I'll write a different post about the consequences of the care assessment at a later date. First I want to raise the issue of how mental health issues prejudice your physical care.
