Hi, my name is sukiee!
Was awarded DLA indefinite. Only got the low rate for personal care . Have now been told I have to apply for pip . Have no thumb joins so you can imaging how that effect daily life . Lifting , squeezing bottles ie shampoo to wash hair . Cannot cut up food , lift pans etc . All my evidence regarding the removal of my thumb joints is 10 years ago . Since then my arthritis in my hands has gone worse . I take pain killers , wax bath for hands and voltrol cream . It states on pip form all evidence has to be less than 2 years old . Where do I stand with this ? My thumb joins are not coming back
