I thought I'd share a little bit of good news in my life! My asthma has been getting more & more problematic of late & I took a decision, alongside applying for PIP, to apply for a Blue Badge. Anyway, I've been given one overwhelmingly on the basis of my breathing & medication side-effects.
The lady who did the assessment came across as genuinely interested in my situation & gave me various bits of advice about some of the things I'm struggling with. It's going to make a big difference to me I think in lots of little ways & I sort of felt, even though I know I shouldn't doubt it anyway, that it vindicates the fact that asthma really can be highly disabling.
