I had my pip reduced to standard rate as I can use a microwave
I find it hurtful the amount of people on here suffering, I have rheumatoid, oesteo, and fibro I was awarded enhance rate 3 years ago, 12 months ago they lowered it , I found when my pip form came back it had been worded different from what I said, I found on the enhance rate I was able to work 16 hours I ran my own business and was coping.
I had my pip reduced to standard rate as I can use a microwave , but I have deformed hands and cannot remove the plastic top when cooked ha , Since having it lowered my house hold bills increased I find it hard now to buy prepared veg e.t.c that I need.
I have since march suffered extreme fatigue due to having to work more, my hands have deformed worse and now have problems in several parts of my body , I am suffering anxiety and depression due to having to cope and I have 2 children a single parent and they expect me to eat microwave meals.
So now instead of my working and contributing to society I am at a point of finishing work which in the long run will cost the government more money x
