That is the most wonderful news so pleased for you. Such a relief when it has been awarded for 5 years means that you can now relax.xx

Well done

That's great news. Nice to hear something positive regarding PIP. Gives the rest of us hope.

Well done you, any tips ??

We all know that we are a complete mess of symptoms, which are the ones that they need to know about to get some help with this constant battle.

My tip is look at all the things you use to make/open etc. I looked at all my things I use for getting ready, cooking etc. and was surprised by how many things I do use. You cannot use the bed as an aid to getting ready anymore so state it is a stool or chair. ( Funny thing is I did use a stool anyway as it was firmer)

Never say on a good day use on a better day. Fill in the form with all your bad days as that is when you need the help and support, Supply as much medical record information like hospital letters etc.

Be well

I was having a flare up when I had my assessment so just told her how I was feeling she was very understanding and made me feel at ease also my sister was with me she's a nurse so she could fill in the blanks for the lady best thing to do is don't panic I had a home assessment and I didn't get dressed coz that's how I normally am in my pj's all day unless I've an appointment x

That's great news well done

Well done :0) x

A big well done to you, now you can relax for a while and calm yourself. I have just had my assessment, not had the letter yet. How long did you wait from assessment to getting your letter if you don’t mind me asking? Just after the assessor left I collapsed and done some real damage to my hip and ribs. I wish she had been there to actually see how I live. Anyway a great big well done to you!

Think it took abt 6 weeks to get the letter hope you get it will say a wee prayer for you hope you are OK after your fall pet gentle hugs x
