The agonising wait

Fibro_Pincess Member Posts: 14 Listener
I was granted PIP after my tribunial, and waiting for my back pay and acknowledgement from DWP is driving me insane! 

I'm really distressed as I need it to pay for a long overdue holiday and a wheelchair.

Am also waiting for the DWPs response to my ESA medical assessment 

And the council regarding a housing band.

My entire life is spent waiting for the postman and it's so frustrating, 

I get so upset when he doesn't arrive.

    Hello, your life at present is like the song “Mr postman”, try and focus on other matters like the tennis on the TV if you are a fan enjoy the warm sunshine. The post will come in its own good time and as you know remaining anxious causes anxiety and unnecessary stress which will not be good for your health and well being. Your not the only one waiting, students for their exam results .
