Hi my name is Tracy and this is my first post. I have a lot of health probs with the main one being spinal stenosis. I have been told that I will never work again and end up in a wheelchair. I am currently fighting pip.

    Hi @tracy74 welcome to the community! Sorry to hear this. Last year, I was told that they weren't sure if I would ever walk again. Took me 9 months but I am able to walk a few feet! I know it is very hard but don't give up hope. Anything is possible!

    Let us know if we can help you with PIP :)

    Hi everyone. I am currently awaiting a court date for my pip. I have a legal student as my advocate. Yes I admit I'm petrified that ill lose all my pip even though I've been told I have a strong case. Tbh I have even more worrying things going on. My dad has cancer and is recovering after a major op. I am seeing my gp today to tell him everything as all this stress is affecting my health.
