    I'm so sorry that it was so horrible for you.

    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Thank you both, ah well what can you do? There are people far far worse off than me. In fact it's helped my mood in a funny way because it's been two years of battling these people and I'm just tired now so sod em they aren't worth it. Unfortunately these Judges and GP's that sit on Government Tribunals and all those with nice cushy jobs with the DWP are in a fortunate situation where they will probably never need someone else's help which is a damn shame really because I wish the roles were reversed just for one day!!!

    But hey in the words of Rocky Balboa which for some strange reason I ended up watching tonight - “The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done."

    Now I'm not going to take up boxing, downing raw eggs or running up steps (especially with the vertigo!!!) but I guess there is a message (albeit somewhat cheesy) in there that I shall try and take on board...

    Hey that was a classic movie moment for me too and sums things up. We all need to find the inner strength to fight on, to keep getting up when life tries to keep us down. Another Rocky inspired quote comes in the lyrics of the song Burning Heart from the Rocky 3 soundtrack

    Deep in our soul
    A quiet ember
    Know it's you against you
    It's the paradox
    That drives us on

    I'm a bit of a fan of the Rocky movies
