I’m in the process of applying for PIP - 3rd attempt. I have a whole lot of things wrong with me including being an amputee (with complications), having COPD, Sleep Apnoea and Depression but the worst thing of all is ADHD which has got me into trouble my whole life and still is. I only found out I had it when I was 53 (I’m 62 now) but I wish I hadn’t because the medication messed up my brain. I am struggling to understand what I need to do to explain to these people what it’s like having to live with it. I’m hoping somebody in here will be willing to lend some advice to old ears.

Thank you. Have a good day.
