For those that followed after I was one of the first on here to apply for PIP on it's introduction in June last year - I am pleased to say that I have finally received their decision. I am equally pleased to say that they have awarded me the Enhanced rate of Mobility. To be honest, I never thought, nor did I expect that I would get anything based on media reports and stories by others on just how hard it is to prove how ill you are and how much you struggle day by day.
All I can suggest to those still waiting is, don't give up - phone them regularly like I did (as frustrating as it was), and get on to your local MP to chase them. Had I not done that I think I would still be waiting for a decision.
