This is my first ever blog, not only on this site but ever ever ever. I dont do facebook, I dont tweet, I just about remember to e-mail old friends from time to time. But I came across this site and felt comforted to learn that others have shared expeiences.It has also confirmed that I am not insane because I: lose my balance and fall over for no reason; muddle up my words; forget how to spell things - and feel exhausted and in pain for no apparent reason.
My experiences of being ill for approx 4yrs prior to diagnosis some 21months ago seem minor when compared to others, and I've also realised how supportive my employer, Occ Health rep and consultant have been - however - entering into the minefield of state benefits is a real daunting one - reading that PIP is being introduced next year left me confused at a time when I thought I was beginning to understand DLA/ESA etc.
I would be grateful if anyone who knows what this is could elaborate.
Many thanks and good wishes to all who are unwell right now.
