I was have been thinking about my PIP renewal claim. I suffer from Bi-polar and a few other illnesses all of which I included in my form and how they affect me. I have contradicted myself when describing how my bipolar affects me. During a very depressive episode (which lately seems to be the majority of the time) I need support to plan a journey and encouragement to leave my house. I also need to be accompanied most of the time. However, when going through a manic phase I am able to leave my house (but need support due to mobility problems). I will stay out all day and all night. Friends and family have tried to get me home but I refuse and can get aggressive so they leave me and I will stay out until the early hours of the morning by myself. I talk to anyone, will go off with anyone, give them money and am a danger to myself. Mood swings are the nature of bipolar and of course it contradicts me saying that I can’t leave the house and then I can and I can stay out when I do! I would be grateful of anyone’s opinions on this please. TIA.
