I've been looking at my pip forms for two weeks

Yes it's true I've not even looked at the questions. I'm wondering whether to bother. It seems like a cruelling process. But I'm also thinking if I was entitled to anything I might be able to reduce my hours in work which might keep me in work longer cause I'm struggling with full time work. I don't know what to do.

You have nothing to lose by applying, get some help from CAB, I don't claim anything as yet but I'm sure someone will be along with helpful answers, all best wishes xx

if you contact our benefits advisor Janet Horton (0300 999 0055 Mon & Fri) or email benefitsadvice@fmauk.org she can email you a copy of the Benefits & Works guidelines to completing a PIP form. Definitely recommend getting some help from CAB or welfare rights officer etc to help you complete it . Good luck xxx

On the forms it says it helps to have a social carer or health worker.

You might have a pleasant surprise. If you don't try you don't get and apart from the form filling and the assessment (there is sure to be one) you have nothing to lose. Do try to get help with filling it in. Remember it isn't what you illness is but how it affects you on a daily basis. Good luck.x
