Hi everyone, got my PIP results two days ago, after having my appt cancelled , I went for second appt. I am so scared I got 0 for everything except mobility resulting in £80 a month, I feel I would be better off to everyone leaving this world . I have basically been called a liar. Because I pushed myself off the chair I have enough grip to prepare food but I don't I also have a degenerative spinal condition and can't tell how hard I grip I can't lift saucepans to empty them etc as well cf and constant pain. I suffer from anxiety but according to examiner didn't show signs of anxiety or poor cognitive processing . My husband has to help me dress, in and out of bath, wash my hair, but because I could push myself out of the chair 0. This whole process is so humiliating, I was completely honest, I had trouble processing and was less stressed as had taken meds and my husband was with me. I don't know how we are going to manage, I worked full time for 30 yrs got cancer then this awful fibro . I was just starting to come to terms with my life but this has put me back so much - why don't people understand how hard this condition is to live with day in day out. I am so exhausted with fighting a system I do not want to be part of but have no choice owing to financial issues. Sorry for the rant I feel desperate , you guys are the only people who understand.
