AWARDED PIP HIP HIP HURRAY

Notified in the last half hour that I have been awarded PIP, very quick as assessment was last sunday 22nd, maybe the assessor decided I was a complete barnpot! Not said how much or what category yet but told to expect letter and payment in next 2 weeks. If anyone needs help on putting forward explanatory detail of how Fibro/ME/CFS affects your daily life ( I didn,t hold back) let me know I will help ou all as much as I can.

With Fondest from Nurse Gladys Emanuel (open all hours)

Congratulations! It's such a relief isn't it. Was shocked when I got it last year. I don't think I would have had the strength to appeal which I'm sure they bank on. I hope it makes life more enjoyable for you. It certainly helped me. :-)

That is absolutely wonderful news, and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck with the level of the award! Well done my friend! :) :)

As Nurse Gladys Emanuel said in one of the episodes last night:

''I want a small brown loaf and two tea cakes!'' :)

That was all I caught as my wife was watching it.

Fantastic - happy for you!! I'm going through a mandatory reconsideration because I was only awarded standard dlc and nothing for mobility (4 points for walking) They said I don't have anxiety and I'm not medicated for it, even though my GP has diagnosed it and I'm taking mirtazapine (which GP recently increased as I'm getting worse) Because of this they said I was able to engage face to face nd plan and follow a journey on my own... This isn't true - on my bad days (around 6/7) I can't do anything or talk to anyone. Haven't seen people since before Christmas and rarely leave the house.... I'm waiting for the evidence they used to be sent then I'm sending it all off... Hopefully they will believe that I am actually suffering!!

What is PIP?

Reply

It is Personal Independent Payments that replaced disability living allowance (DLA) it is not means tested and so anyone with a chronic illness can apply it helps you reduce your working hours if you still manage to work and in some cases motability is given to help buy you transport.

Hello NurseGladys123 stumbled across yr post when looking for advice on preparing a daily diary for pip on how my fibro/cfs effects me coz for some reason i cant think of how to explain this...im so exhausted all the time an i just dont know what or how to do this so fort il ask the question if anyone else has done this and found your title in the list before i did how strange..i notice tho this is from 2 years ago but im hoping maybe u can still advize at all..i dont know even if doing such a diary type of thing will help but some have advized me to write one or rather id ve typing one due to the pain in my hands but i dont know where or how is there aby chance u could advize on this anything will be so appreciated but no worries if not i understand xx

Sorry I am confused. Which post are you referring to? Could be my brain fog?
