Hope everyone is doing ok
I just wanted to post because many have mentioned that when feeling poorly they are unable to fill in Benefit Forms.
When I was bedbound I contacted my local Advocacy service and a kind volunteer came to the house to help fill in the forms. This personally helped ease my stress and it may be something others living with Fibromyalgia may want to consider looking into.
The advocate can help as they usually have experience with benefit forms from their work with other clients. FibroAction can email you the Benefits & Work Guides for free and these have good advice & information to help you too.
Most areas should have some kind of Advocacy service but what criteria you must meet for help may vary.
Also there are other organisations on the FibroAction website you may want to consider contacting regarding benefits. Link below :
The Advocate definitely provided me with extra help to complete these forms and I really appreciated it.
