Just wanted to let those you who have listened to me moan on over the last months.....I have been awarded the Pip benefits, enhanced rate for both components! I am over the moon! My first purchase will be a wheelchair so I can get out and enjoy life with my family at last. I can't tell you what a relief it is to know the assessor really understood the difficulties I go through every day and now I have a little extra to help with the expense of living with my conditions. The award is for ten years. It won't make my pain any better but at least I can maybe afford some extra treatment now, and I won't have to worry about doing all the extra laundry that incontinence brings because I can afford to put the washer and dryer on more.
It has been a long wait, and a stressful one, but it is over and its time to concentrate on living. I will be moaning again no doubt, but not for another day or two at least!
