Hello and happy Easter to you all.
With spondylolisthesis, sciatica and fibromyalgia I am currently off sick from my job where I am a part time primary school teaching assistant. I have been caring for my disabled Mum for 5 years, claiming some carer's allowance.
I'm unable to care for myself now, let alone my mother, so I'm going to have to apply for PIP.
If I get PIP, it could take months and I now have to stop the carer's allowance. I don't know how long I will be on paid sick leave. There is going to be a large gap without any income and I don't know what to do. I know PIP will be back-paid to the date I first apply but I'm not sure that will wash with my bank! Can anyone advise please?
ps I can't sell my body as it's not very pretty and it's a bit broken.
pps I'm cutting it fine for finding a rich man who wants a 44 year old cripple with an unhealthy desire for collecting cats.
