    I have Ehlers Danlos 3 and several other conditions. I'm waiting for a decision on a PIP MR. I am feeling so low at the minute .The Capita assessment was full of lies and inconsistencies. Feel so let down ?

    I had a phone call about my MR I would say the best thing to do is go over the forms as many times as you can bear, when they ask you whats wrong, take time to explain how each descriptor effects you, by practicing it will help with the stress, if you are unhappy after that you should get any help you can and head to a tribunal, an advisor or CAB would be a good thing if you go to the next step.
