Hi everyone, I am so confused! I am off sick from work for the last 3 weeks because of a bad flare up, and will have to ask my gp to sign me off again cos I am still not well enough to go back. I can see my working days coming to an end soon and I'm petrified! I have no idea about benefits - people mention 'PIP' and 'ESA' and I don't know what these are? Isn't a pip a seed in the middle of an apple?!! Please help!
