    @steve51 hi it's that damn question moving around on esa50 they seem to presume nearly everyone can walk.i can't no more than 1 to 3 metres indoors with assistance or walking frame.cant do anymore than that due to no ball socket in left hip have severe osteoarthritis two hospitals won't operate unless I'm seizure free for min of 6mths can't go more than 3days without seizures so have no hope.am on the strongest painkiller you can get IE patches change every 96hrs.the so called help line DWP or assessment line you must tick a box told my friend.but none fit my disability.its made me ill the stress.pressure.on top of my mental health and physical disabilities.its like everything is jumberling up in my head making me feel lousy.

    Hi @CARL58

    Thank’s, yes it is not very good (Benefit System)

    I have just started my “PIP Assessment” the packs questionare keep going over & over.

    I sent the pack back to them “Rec Post” on Monday morning.

    They should have received it Tuesday morning apparently.

    I had a text yesterday asking where it was!!!

    “Never mind”

    How are things this morning????
