Hope everyone had a good Christmas and have a good new year. I work 30 hours a week and I'm really struggling with ache pains and extreme tiredness. I'm unable to drop my hours as it would be a struggle to pay bills and basically live. I was thinking of applying for pip as I feel I would be able to drop my hours and continue working if I got a little bit extra, I keep reading about people not getting this and it puts me off applying also would it be worth the stress. I'm rubbish at filling forms in and explaining how I am day to day as everyday is different. My current illnesses are fibro, under active thyroid, b12 and folate defienticy. Would I be looked on differently because I can work and why should I get anything extra because I can work. I feel work keeps me going and some days I could cry knowing I have to go into work when I feel so crap, I feel I have to keep fighting with myself and to push myself but I know it's not helping .
