pip success

Hi I had the brown envelope this morning and could not believe I got enhanced rate on both mobility and care !!!! on DLA I had high mobility and low care so quite a difference, and for 10 years,

It was a worry waiting for the result but can forget about it for a while now, we filled in the application form ourselves we did have the guide from nras to help but the rest we was just honest and concentrated on what I can't do, I have read a lot about the transition and have seen the figures so was very worried I would lose the mobility but has been ok in the end, for the assessment I had a home visit and a really nice lady (ex nurse) who know a lot about RA so that in my view probably helped my case.

I do have a few other problems aside from RA but having had 3 different biological's shows I have not manged to get my RA under control yet, I still live in hope and manage to smile but had a bigger smile this morning.
