Hi everyone. I am starting to fill in my review form for PIP. Does any one have any advice on any support they may have had in filling in the form? Previously a lady helped me from what used to be the charity DISC. She is no longer available. I am a bit anxcious about the whole thing. I have been on a new medication since September which has been helping a lot. I have had such a rocky road to this point and unable to work.....my blood test readings have meant I have had to miss some injections so even though it is helping me I don't feel secure in my physical abilities e.g if I miss an injection my symptoms become more apparent. Even on the meds I still find I have to be careful to not over do it, my energy goes. My husband works and we have a young child. We were struggling on just one income, the PIP has helped this. How do people fill in these forms when in the position I am now in....i.e Walking: I can now walk much further, but this changes if I miss the meds, or over do things. I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place, as far as wanting to work, still being uncertain if I will be able to stay on this medication, knowing that the PIP has been the difference between us keeping our heads above water or not. Thank you for listening.
