I keep reading stories about pip and I'm terrified that I will not receive anything. I was awarded higher rate DLA when I was 17, I now use my award against motability for my car this enables me to get to work, I work 21 hours a week but would never make the journey by bus as it would be too much, I don't really go anywhere by myself other than to work, my husband and 17 year old son are brilliant and I don't have to worry about anything in the house, the only thing I take charge of is the shopping but my hubby comes with me, if I left it to him we'd have loads of food but nothing that we could make a meal with Lol I am lucky that he works 4 on 4 off and is around most of the time. My employers are fab too, I work for a company that sells holidays to disabled people so they are extremely understanding and have made all the necessary adaptions that I need. I don't have to walk far, I use the furniture etc in the house and at work, but if I do need to walk any distance I have my trusty walking stick. I have friends who have said that surely if I have had the DLA this long there is no way they would take it away, given that I have got worse over the years not better, I had revision hip replacement in June 2014 but this has not helped the nerve damage as I thought it might.
