Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024

I have had renal problems since birth, including two transplants. I am currently on dialysis. I have just reached my sixtieth birthday having being told I wouldn't live last fifteen.

    Not too bad. Problems with arthritis aren't helping. I'm also having my PIP reviewed, so I've been anxious and depressed about that. Thanks for asking.

    I can understand the anxiety around the PIP review @Davmog. At least there are the appeals processes to stop the DWP just doing what they want!

    How did your application go the first time round?
