I know a few people have posted on here before about PIP but thought I'd post this.
I currently work, but this has become harder & I suspect that long-term I'm going to find it harder to find & keep work & have started to think about a PIP claim to give me a bit more flexibility.
The problem is that on a good day, you'd barely know there was anything wrong, but on a bad day I can't even make it to the kitchen. The steroids I take give me 'jelly legs' all the time, so I can't run, nor can I climb steps ever without difficulty, but I can walk reasonable distances when I'm well.
I've looked at online tests & they seem to imply that you have to be unable to walk suggested distances all of the time - is that correct? Or can you talk to them about the long-term or overall picture?
I am genuinely starting to feel that my health is on a bit of a steady decline & the pressure of needing to work full-time, all the time is becoming a burden. But if I turn up for an assessment on a day when I'm reasonably well, I imagine they would laugh me out of the room!
Any thoughts or experiences, or suggestions of a way forward are welcome.
