Hi
I am "newly" disabled.  I have a back condition which means my spine is self fusing and growing extra bone.  The pain is severe and I have gone from walking normally 5 years ago to only managing a few metres now.  I am waiting the outcome of my first PIP application and considering buying a power chair.  I am lucky as I have a great employer who values me for who I am not my ability to run 100m.
