Not hopeful anymore
when I had my PIP assessment just over 2 weeks ago, I was so nervous that I chattered inanely to my friend all the way through. Since then I have fallen apart. 11 days ago I was admitted to hospital after an ECG showed I'd had a heart attack in recent days. I'm still in hospital awaiting the organisation of a care package. I called PIP to let them know my change of circumstances but the man was rude & unhelpful. Now I feel there's little point in expecting to pass. I'm having suicidal thoughts & don't know what to do. My life is already falling apart & the crisis team will be there to meet me when I'm discharged. I feel I've been branded a liar & have no idea how I'll cope without the benefits as I'm a pensioner who has to rely on taxis, without them I'll be housebound. How do I cope from here?
