Tracy1965 Member Posts: 22 Connected
ive been receiving pip for a couple years now and apart from my back getting much worse that I’ve had to have a bath lift installed so can get in and out my depression and anxiety has got much worse hence why I’m having another assessment as I can’t go out the house without my son and can’t use public transport or I panic I could cope better when  I had my own car but due to having a epileptic fit and couldn’t drive for a year I ended up selling my car to help with finances and being stuck in the house all day every day is driving me to not want to live again among other things to worry about I’m so anxious today knowing I have to leave the house tommorow a friend is picking me up to take me but I’m scared I’m going to have a panic attack please help

    Hi lm Tricia1951 lve hardback pain due to arthritis for years even despite injections , worsened by arthritis in both hips and what makes my back worse is  having a difference in leg lengths. Your body is all out of kilt. I sympathise with you and you do become depressed. I hope things go well for you try to keep calm. If you can you deserve things to go well for you. Good luck.
