Why after twenty years no circumstance change, has help with eye tests, dental, prescription stopped
I have now been on PIP for a few years, it took some doing like others, a break down and many tears, less of money like others etc but still on my other benifits I was on before. But my husband and myself are confused to why now they don't help with glasses, eye tests, dental treatment and check ups and prescriptions (which I had to apply for an exemption). My daughter who works but is on low income gets help, but we can't because I contributed to national insurance (or something like that, sorry brain fog). Since being disabled we have never had to pay for it so I don't get why now? Sorry for the rant and sorry if I don't make much sense at the mo. We are struggling, but so are many others, however if it wasn't for the prescription exemption I wouldn't be able to afford my meds and I haven't been to the dentist for a few years and have gone way past my due eye test and new glasses. My nan is going to help going to the dentist, but I feel awful having to ask. It's degrading being disabled in the first place and it shouldn't be, we all just need a little help and shouldn't be made to feel like beggers or burdens on society, I had worked for some years and would work now if I could, however due to unforseen circumstances years back I'm unable to. Please can anyone shed some light, thank you.
