Hi,
I got mine this week put down all co-morbid conditions, how walking impacts on how much energy or pain you will suffer later on. I never realised how short of breath I got when walking till I filmed my dog on my ipod and realised it was me that was puffing and panting not the dog.
Even stuff like bursitis, painful feet, osteoarthritis.
The only thing I was told was that if I applied again in three years time I would probably have to have a medical.

I would google 'help with blue badge form'. I imagine some people will have posted guides online, you may also find that some charities for medical conditions which can affect mobility may also have their own guide. I know there's an ME charity somewhere which has guides to filling in ESA and DLA forms so hopefully there'll be a charity somewhere which has done the same for BB applications. Good luck, hope your hubby gets one :fingerscrossed:

Hi
If your hubby is on high rate DLA you can apply for a blue badge however some councils will issue you with a blue badge without DLA.

When filling in the form put as much info down about how fibro affects your hubbys mobility, explain how far he can walk, whether he has to use any aids. How tired he gets.
You could also ask your Gp to write you a letter backing this up. :goodluck1:

I applied for mine when I was awarded HRM DLA, it only took a couple of days from completing the form.
