Hi, I finally retired from work in July and although I no longer have the stress of having to deal with stress , I'm still no better. Aching limbs and muscles, lethargy so bad that some days my brain refuses to connect with my mouth! Anyway, plenty of you will have all this and more. Urso is working which is great but I know that this is only slowing down this crazy disease. My family suggested that I apply for PIP and now waiting for the form but worrying about it all the time. Have any of you applied and what was the outcome? I've read stuff on here that PBC is automatic award but I saw that a man with one leg has just been refused! The Governemnt are trying their hardest to stop paying disability benefits and in my current state, I could not cope with any appeal system. Any advice would be great, thank you.
