I'm fairly new to this forum, but I must say I find it very interesting & supportive.
Just as a little background I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 18 months ago. They still haven't got my pain, sleep or general malaise under control.......or at least a little more stable. What isn't helping is that I also have active crohns in my ileum, having had my large intestine removed a few years ago due to ulcerative colitis.
The medical term is that I'm in a bad place at the moment as the 2 conditions are exasperating each other!!
On Thursday morning I'm due a home visit to enable a PiP assessment to be carried out. I wish they could have visited today or yesterday, when after approx 3 hours sleep over Sun & Monday nights I physically couldn't get out of bed due to chronic fatigue and widespread pain!!
Has anybody else had a home assessment??
What sort of things have I got to look forward to??
Can anyone give me any pointers??
This is my first time claiming anything, after working in the same job for 30 years and I'm just afraid that I won't get across how I'll I feel on a daily basis.
TIA of any support and replies xxxx
