I drift off radar, so I've just managing what I can. Life isn't always as rosy as it seems. My Pip result came in that I did and I'm not entitled to it, So there was hope now gone ill just keep plodding along I'm trying to help myself maybe thats the wrong way these days Im not in a bad way as I know some people are which I respect. But I do struggle with day to day stuff mentally and physically because I get on with it because I have to you get side lined. It tops off this month lovely plus it was my Birthday yesterday they could of waited till feb to give me the bad news ;) Sorry moan over I know many of you here suffer much worse than me and struggle I hope you are all ok and not feeling it too much.

  • Clair happy birthday honey I loved you post Mice to here someone being a happy I meant nice not Mice you don't want those do you xxx

  • Hello Claire, Sorry about the bad news you have received from PIP and on your birthday of all days. Will you be thinking of following up with requesting a Mandatory Reconsideration and then Appealing their decision? You will be more likely to get a fair and independent hearing when Appealing (mandatory will be by letter to enable you to Appeal, they just had to get that extra step in didn't they?) You may want to phone and get a copy of the report. I used to compare myself to others being worse (or better) than myself and it's best to focus on one's own health and struggles, and this was the most difficult for me to come to terms with. Hope you can get good support if you decide to go ahead.

    Best Wishes, Alice

  • Happy birthday for yesterday. Yes bad news always seems to come at what I call the most inappropriate of times. Do consider asking them for a reconsideration and a copy if your report so you can see if their are any glaring errors you can appeal against. Hope you will be feeling a bit more upbeat soon.x

  • I am so genuinely sorry to read this and I sincerely hope that you feel better soon. I am so sincerely sorry that you did not qualify for PIP but you could appeal this decision. Happy belated birthday and please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • Thanks ken x
