Pip assessment

I had my assessment this afternoon & after all my worrying & sleepless nights I'm pleased to say I think it went well. The lady I saw was lovely & very sympathetic.

At the end of my almost hour long assessment she told me that she couldn't see any reason why I shouldn't get pip.

Now the wait for the dreaded brown envelope.

Will keep you all informed as to the outcome x

Fantastic I am so pleased to hear that. Will keep my fingers crossed for you, would cross my legs as well but might fall over. Let us know what happens. I bet it is just a relief for it to be over.x

It feels like a big weight has been lifted. I know I still have to wait for the decision but the worst is over now.

Mobility for me is bad and I have to use a wheelchair when out. But its the distance you can walk that makes the difference in points! I also have myofacial pain in my left arm and unable to raise it so my Sister has to wash my hair....♥♥
