Opinions please folks?
I am still awaiting a decision on my P.I.P., claim from the assessor I had a few weeks ago.
I am genuinely disabled, although I can walk at times with relative ease.
But when Gout strikes in my left big toe joint.
I am virtually immobile (even around the house)
I also have a spastic right leg, resulting from a Brain Injury I sustained in my childhood..
Right to the question...
Because of the Spastic Leg, it has a lot of muscle waste.
To try and build this up I go cycling. This does help with my right leg.
Plus also it elevates my mood. I also have depression.
Would me cycling affect any future or indeed present entitlement to P.I.P. award?
