I have DWP telling me i have the enhanced mobility and care from what was disability living allowance. I am so relieved and in shock that it came through so quick and without a visit from the people who come and see you in your own home to assess you. I did send a letter i had from the consultant after i had a second opinion and i think that helped no end. I now have to start to believe that i am chronically ill now instead of just riding along like i have been doing. Now is the time to try and sort some things out like what can i do and can't do and try to organise myself a bit better.

I am so happy and PIP can be successful.xxxxxx

  • Great news x

  • So glad you were awarded PIP at the enhanced rate on both components.

    We hear so many horror stories, it's nice to know that they are actually looking at factual evidence and sparing people from the fear and humiliation of an assessment.

    I think there is an important message in your post, and it's:

    Make sure your medical team are aware of how you are affected on a daily basis, what difficulties you have and what you can't do or are missing out on rather than simply confirming a diagnosis.

    I'm not entirely sure congratulations is the right word but I'm sure it's a massive relief and one less thing to worry about.

    Best wishes

  • Yes it is darling and such a relief less for me to worry about. Thank you for your words.xxxx

  • I'm glad to hear that you're getting somewhere with all this.


  • What a relief for you and this gives us all hope when our turn comes round. xx
