Hi all diagnosed with ms since 12/2012! But  have got to the point where I can no longer work! Use a stick to walk but only short distance! Sending forms off this weekend for pip! I’m a divorced mother of two teanagers! Currently on sick from work which I know I just can’t  do anymore! Already stressed how the three of us are going to manage! Any advice very much Appreciated
