Oxygen only extra medication, if you no longer believe you can continue working.

Firstly speak to your employer, don't make yourself intentionally unemployed this will affect any benefits.

For benefits check


PIP can claim even if you are working.



If you've been prescribed L-TOT (long term oxygen therapy) as well as ambulatory, then you need it. It came as a smack in the face when I was told I needed it, too - so you're not alone. You'll adapt your life to suit, believe me.

As for working, it depends on what you do... try not to get too downhearted. Oxygen is a life-saver.
