Hi I'm new here. Im 26 and last week was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and hypermobility after being extremely ill for over a year. I have and 18 month old son who I seriously struggle to cope with most of the time due to my illness. I applied and was denied pip as I was two points under qualifying, this has been a massive blow as I cannot afford playschool for my son which would help me massively. I am in the process of appealing the pip. I had to resign from my new job as a stroke rehab assistant after collapsing unconscious at work due to being ill. I hsve found this difficult to deal with as I worked so hard to get the job after being on maternity leave for a long time . I feel all these factors are making my anxiety and mood worse as I'm finding it all hard to come to terms with. If anyone has any advice, knowing other people understand would be much help to me at this time .
