Fibromyalgia

The very fact of trying to type think remember. and seeing figures of authority. frightening. along with cloudy foggy brain however its named. Makes trying to explain my illness difficult .
    I was on Disability Living at the highest rate. At my pip hearing appointment. my brain goes into panic mode. so i agree with everything suggested. my wife did her best to steer me into the truth. but i talked gibberish. and just wanted it over.
     I lost around £130 a month. but the fear and panic it has left in my memory. I am too afraid of contesting the result.
     Just how many others have similar problems.m with negative results.

    Hi,

    Lots of other people have been refused or they don't receive the award they're happy with but lots of others are successfully awarded and receive the award they're happy with.

    PIP and DLA are different and PIP is about how your conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activities based on the PIP descriptors.

    Were you awarded anything?
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.

I now try to remember😏 to write things down as you think them and say to whoever you have to speak to, that you have social anxiety try and breathe deeply, hope something helps babe, it's crippling I know xx
