At tribunal when they talk about taking a journey they mentioned things like travelling across the road to a friends house, travelling 4 doors down to the local shop and the gp.

the thing you have to remember is that there have been amendments to the legislation and from 17.03.17 descriptor f should read
"Cannot, for reasons other than psychological distress, follow the route of a familiar journey without another person, assistance dog or orientation aid"

this also applies to c.  cannot for reasons other than psychological distressplan the route of a journey 4 points
d Cannot, for reasons other than psychological distress, follow the route of an unfamiliar journey without another person, assistance dog or orientation aid" 10 points

This is where it seems daft. If my GP or a shop were 4 doors down I could almost certainly get there with necessary pain relief. But as the nearest anything is a mile away my GP does home visits and my shopping is online and the asda man empties the crates onto worktops as I can't bend. So yes, I would get 4 doors down if I had to but as anywhere I need to go is further than I can get I am housebound to all extent and purposes. I think the questions don't fit everybody. I'm really low at the moment so all forms are beyond me.
