Hope everybody has had a lovely Christmas & looking forward to the New Year.
Had my PIP assessment 6th Dec & received the letter on the 13th December, my claim has been looked at and they can't award me any PIP, out of the 10 daily activities maximum score 118, I got 6 as I can manage myself daily living wise. Out of the Mobility when I needed to score 24 I got 4 so guess what I am fairly mobile. I'm not under care of any health professionals. Do you know why this is ? after spending 8 months in hospital 5 weeks of which were in a Coma I worked hard to recover, once my skull was fractured and my bones were broken, I learnt to walk which wasn't much fun at 40. If however I'd sat on my backside and done nothing, put on 5 stone and felt sorry for myself then possibly I'd be deemed worthy of help from the DWP. Oh I have the support of my husband and I have adequate memory and cognitive function and I was fully alert and oriented. So I am not classed as worthy of governmental help. I am not entitled to any benefits as I am a married woman and being a married woman means unless I divorce my husband I am his responsibility. Thing is prior to being hit by a car I was a very independent lady and worked, studied and raised 2 children so even though married I made my own way in the world and by suddenly telling me with a head injury, right get back to sorting yourself out as the government will do nothing for you is just what I expected and I would much rather have not been made to re-live all the pain and hurt that the accident caused. I cannot believe how low dealing with all this had made me. I guess could have faked my wellness and played a lot more poor me cards, but that's not me and I refuse to not be proud of myself for how far I have come from the woman that had 1/100 chance of survival. --- Scr*w you DWP, I DO NOT NEED SOME JUDGMENTAL D*CK LOOKING DOWN THERE NOSES AT ME, I AM 1 IN 100 FOR A REASON !!
