Hi My name is Wendy.
I suffer from Ostroathritus in my spine, neck hips & hands. Can't walk very far & use a wheelchair where ever I go. Which isn't often as hubby works 4 days on 4 days off.  So some days feel very isolated being stuck in doors.
I did receive DLA for 2 years from 2011 to 2013 while having an hip replacement, but after that it was stopped & I lost the appeal for it.
My condition has got worse since then & now I've been told I am now pre diabetic.  Also suffer from depression as well.  I am nervous  about applying for the new p i p just in case I get turned down again, plus also I am not sure whether the answers I give may jeopise getting it as I find it hard to talk to people in general.
Can any one help & give me advice.
