I can't believe how difficult these forms are and I am very scared that my income is going to be cut more than in half in exactly 16 days.
When I did the original forms I had ALL of the help from a friend who I'm no longer in contact with (hi poor social skills). I sat down on the weekend all calm and with a cup of coffee thinking that the form isn't so big, I can do this, but 3 hours later I'm near breaking point, hopes shattered, fears overwhelming, you know how it is.
There's someone at my local brain injury centre (BASIC in Manchester) who helps fills in forms and I want to be able to take a first draft to him but don't think that this will be possible. Just found out that he's on holiday so I'll have to try as best as I can until he returns.
Mobility will be scrapped but my lovely brain definitely still isn't fit to fulfil standard, societal expectations (work, play, family. home).
Have you filled the form in again? Do you have any recommendations? All I can think of to work with is uncomfortably diving into what was written originally and moving things around.
How is this supposed to be safely completed when I've been trying to stay positive for years and still haven't managed this?
