  • Congratulations. I had my assessment on Tuesday. How long after assessment did you get the award ?

  • Thanks Charmaine.

    About six weeks. I had a brown envelope a few days ago apologising for delay! Waste of money. Hope you get a good result too!



  • Thanks x

  • ‼️‼️‼️‼️👏👏👏👏👍👍👍👍🌟🌟🌟🎉🍾💐😘

  • Thanks so much. Relief everywhere!


  • Congratulations.

    What good news and obviously a welcome relief for you.



  • Thanks. It is a relief⚽️

  • Brilliant news your disability recognised.

    It is good to hear some good news coming out of the PIP assessment.

  • My assessor was very sympathetic. Thanks for your good wishes


  • WOW ! WOW!

    Footygirl you deserve every WOW there is! Congratulations. It is lovely to hear some good news. Well done. Your relief is clear , just enjoy being giddy for a while.

    Very best wishes Pixiewixie

  • I shall. Share it with me!



  • Congratulations, indefinite means they don't intend to re assess you again. Mine says 5years.

  • Wow. Again. The assessor did say she was recommending they dont bother me again. To think her opinion was taken. Thanks MG for your good wishes. Sorry that they will be bothering you again so soon.

    There are some good sympathetic assessors out there.

    By the way, buried in the paperwork, my hubby found that they will contact me in 2026 to ask if anything has changed. That does sound like it will not be a full assessment.

    Is everyone stressing these are incurable diseases that can be treated but will never improve, only the opposite?

    Love to all


  • Hi Footygirl

    Well done for getting enhanced rate for PIP but as you say a bit sad your health is that bad to qualify!. Takes the worry away for you and you can concentrate on your health and getting a good Rheumy!.

    I'd phone Citizens Advice to ask if 'ongoing period ' means indefinite. They'll be able to tell you.

    Keep scoring footy and thanks for sharing the good news. X🌟🌟😊😊😊⚽️⚽️⚽️🍾🍾🍾

  • Thanks guru. Yeah good and bad bits but it is such a weight off.

    The keen GP I have found is doing her best to steer me to a good Rheumy. I have confirmed that I am staying with poor Rheumy, to continue getting 4 weekly blood tests, and I await a nurse specialist appointment at Manchester in August where I can find out if they are also proactive with bloods. I spoke to a guy who thought I would have to have blood tests via my GP who would then fax them to Manchester. Yikes, so many things could go wrong! If I go to Manchester I dont mind the two hour round trip for bloods every whenever so things are clear. Watch this space.

    Thanks again, join me in being giddy!



  • Hi Footygirl

    I'm giddy with relief for you and hope that your lupus nurse appointment next month is helpful re bloods and your health. Usually monthly bloods are done at GP and results sent to them and Rheumy by email from the lab. The form can state who the results need to go to..

    Keep scoring and take care. X

  • Brilliant news Footygirl!! It's so hard to get PIP these day's, so celebrate away. Treat yourself to something nice

  • I shall, I shall! Perhaps a new sunproof wrap as the dun coloured one I use to be functional is so boring! Or a new sunhat!

    Thanks for your support. Be giddy with me!



  • Excellent, brilliant, wonderful!

  • Thanks so much Lupiknits. It cheers me even more to lift others' spirits too

    Be giddy!


  • hallelujah !! someone has started listening to us Lupies at last. So, pleased for you x

  • I'm so late to the party, I hope you're still buoyant and relieved. A sign of good things to come, surely xx

  • Thanks guru. Appreciate your support. I really hope so too.

    Hope you are as well as you can be
