    It's put the fear of God into me!

    I'm a single parent with two children aged 11 and 6, the eldest has Aspergers and I've recently made an application for DLA as the law changes means he won't have me to support him as and when needed, we've been turned down once and I'm appealing the decision.

    I have savings of just over 1200.00 and I bounce this money around cover private therapy for my son, he has depression and anxiety disorders.

    I get, from my family about 100-150 a week to help with these costs to help him live an independant life and to get him ready for Secondary school transition. (I'm in Central London and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy isn't cheap!)

    I have a partner who's in the Army, he's based in London but my flat is so small he can't live with us, not doesn't, can't, if we could move to a bigger flat he could, as it is I can't allow it at the impact on my son would be to much, so at the moment we have a teenage love affair thing going on, with my son as the father saying goodnight and waiting for him to leave. :-)

    I work as a volunteer during the day when the kids are at school, and put my all into it! It means I can be there at the drop of a hat if there are any issues in school, and during the holidays I can be with my kids, my son wouldn't do well in childcare, he's of the 'doesn't play well with others' Aspergers type.

    Please help!

    I really am terrified I'm doing something wrong.

    Has anyone else had one of these letters? Am I breaking the rules? I'm shaking and upset, especially as it's Saturday and there's nothing I can do about it.
