I am 62 have RA which as you all know is okish one day and terrible the next.
I retired from nursing last year as it was all getting too much for me and as my RA progressed my GP spoke to me about claiming PIP. I did, then read so many awful experiences at the face to face assessment I chickened out.
Three months ago I attempted to work 24 hours a week in a nursing home. I failed. My knees and ankles let me down badly.
I have now re-applied for PIP but I am already anxious about the assessment.
Is there any need for my anxiety. Is there any advice you could give me to help.
Thanking you in advance.
