Hi all, never posted before but want to let people know I applied for pip in January. Got my assessment 2 weeks ago and exactly one week later got the brown envelope. Shocked when I read it I was awarded lower rate for 2 years. Im over the moon. I think alot depends on whoever you have assessment with. I feel very fortunate that I saw a nurse in Preston who informed me that just days earlier she and her colleagues had an awareness meeting to discuss fibro and the effects it has on people's lives. I truly believe if this nurse had not attended this meeting I would not have been awarded. I think all health professionals should be made to have these awareness meetings to allow them more understanding of the condition. Only then would we all be awarded payment knowing we are all truly suffering with this horrible illness and we really can't work in our condition. Maybe there is hope for many more if each area in the UK take a leaf out of the health professionals from the Preston area....thankyou thankyou
