I know some of you are going through/ thinking of going for early retirement due to ill health. Just to say, after months- I applied last Easter- it's finally come through. So for me it was worth going through the stress, pain and endless examinations and questions. I have two pensions and it was hard to see in black and white that no- one thinks I'll work in any capacity again. But, I can also pretend I'm a highly successful business woman who made so much money that I can retire at 41! (I just choose to use a !mobility scooter because I'm a lazy business woman;-))
I' m not getting a lot, but at least I will be off ESA- stupid, but I get v stressed about it! PIP, I think, will stay, so not quite escaped completely. Anyway. I'm rambling- just wanted to give some hope to all those who are battling through the horrendous system!
