    Hi Sam, I'm Becky and I have fibromialgia. I am trying to sort out my pip claim at the moment and I'm just fed up with it all. They've stopped my money altogether my husband works but I now have nothing to contribute to the marriage financially, and we've lost quite a bit of money a month I'm wondering how we'll manage with bills loans etc, I've asked for a mandatory reconsideration and I'm now just waiting and worrying. Thanks for listening and reading. Becky
