I have had fibro for many years now and was never given the right kind of meds to help me deal with it better so I could cope so I changed doctors and finally I feel like I'm getting the help I need, even if every visit results in having yet another blood test. I have just recently been told that I have M.E. (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and I don't know about anyone else, I find it extremely difficult to concentrate, get tired very easily and fall asleep on a bad day and not realise I have done so. I am waiting till I've see the specialist for the M.E. then apply once again for the P.I.P.S. benefit as I need a car just to get about but wouldn't be able to afford one or even run on without some sort of money as I can't work at the moment because I don't go out on my own for fear of falling.
If any of you kind Fibromites out there have succeeded in gaining P.I.P.S. I would be glad of any help you could give me. I've rang FMA UK benefits helpline but because it is run by volunteers, who I appreciate suffer also, there's no-one there until Monday 16/11/15.
