I am a older lady I have osteoarthritis and possibly Fibromalgia not sure if I have spelt that right the doctor is still testing for the latter at the moment I claim dla.and I will be honest although I am in agony everyday and struggling i walk with a stick have a mobility scooter but don't use it as often as I could sheer bloody minded but from the outside apart from the stick I probably. Look ok I'm not but pain apart from in your eyes and face doesn't always show I am dreading the moment when the paperwork comes for pip.I am not brilliant at paperwork forget things easily so I don't think I am going to be able to put down what he'll this illness is and at 60years I aren't due to be able to claim oap so right now I am very worried because they just seem to not pass many people for pip enough about me hope everyone else is having as pain free day as possible
