I am currently facing filling in the PIP form, it is horrendous. I am single, live in a flat and have no one to help me at all. At add insult to injury, I was born asthmatic, added Bronchiectasis by age 6, need hearing aids from age 21 and at 54 was diagnosed with a brain meningioma. At that point it was pointed out to me I should have DLA.
Since then I have relocated to a small flat, formally retired and survive. A neighbour has pointed out that I actually DO everything which the form implies denote disability. My reply, I have no option but to feed and wash myself.
On Wednesday I will have my annual COPD tests which last year showed a lung functionality of 48%. On Thursday I get updated hearing aids. Currently my DLA pays for a cleaner, the laundry of my bedding and the window cleaner. I really can't do without this help. Does that prove I should receive PIPS?
I am now having nightmares!
