I had my pip review this morning and I felt really overwhelmed and afraid that my mummy had to speak. I don’t go out for the way I feel as I find it hard. I shake with nerves and I am worried sick. I also suffer from arthritis in my knee and sciatica in my back. I never reported  it before but because it’s getting worse I felt o had to say something. I also suffer ADHD and feel I have autism which I am going to see someone to get diagnosed. I over think about everything and I was wondering if anyone had this problem when dealing with pip reviews.

    I’m sorry you had a hard time on the call. I’m glad your mum helped you out. It’s ok to have your mum help you out. Lots of people do have someone support them with the call, you don’t need to feel bad about it. I hope you are feeling a bit better now it’s over with and out of the way.

    @J1975 Well done for getting through your assessment! I hope you treated yourself afterwards :) I am so sorry it made you feel so overwhelmed. I am keeping everything crossed that it goes in your favour 🤞
