After having some bad days I'm feeling a little better today, however the brown envelope arrived today. I was awarded standard rate for care but nothing for mobility. I was 1 point off enhanced for care but 0 for mobility. I can't understand it at all. I can't walk that far and if I do I'm tired aching and breathless. If I go to the doctors I'm done for the day. It seems it was based on me getting from the taxi to the pip centre but didn't take account that I then got my husband to pick. E up directly outside and went to bed. I don't go out much as I. Unable to walk around the shops. I can't remember the last time I was able to go and have a good look round. I was even told at the assessment that because I was so bad she didn't want me to stand up to do the physical assessment. When I did originally fill out the form I was able to walk but that was a year ago. I just don't get it and don't know what to do next. Feeling quite down this week.
