    Hi @travis20
    PIP is a marathon. Exhausting, frustrating and an endurance sport. One we do not do by choice and I totally sympathise. But! Keep cracking on with it, jumping through hoops as it will very likely be worth it. It is really hard but don't let his put you off or make you wonder if you 'deserve' it or are 'entitled'. Eventually you will get the help you need and deserve and it will make life a little easier. 

    Best of luck, do let us know if you need help. When I felt I couldn't take it anymore I called the Scope helpline. There's also lots of info here as pointed out above. 

    Take care
