Thank you for your newsfeed.

I have been listening to the news regarding PIP, I am on this benefit.

having heard the plans and changes the government is making, I feel that I’m being discriminated against just for being disabled, I feel vulnerable, I don’t understand how vouchers are going to work because we have different needs etc.

does anyone else feel the same?
