MS and PIP
Hi, my name is Kelly, I’m 45, married with two grown up kids 😊 that still live at home i was diagnosed in 2007 with rr MS i was very lucky when first diagnosed as after each relapse after a few months I was back to normal so went down the holistic path. About five years ago I’d started to progress have more relapses and not getting back to normal but I chose to dig myself a big hole instead of dealing with it and stayed there for the next few years, then about 18 months ago I decided to tell family, friends just how bad things were, thankfully one of my very close friends booked me an appointment to see my specialist and took me and I will be forever grateful to her as I’m a very strong lady but also very stubborn 😉. Medically it has been so good for me as now I’m getting the help I need. But I came out my denial hole I was told to apply for PIP and universal credit as I don’t work due to my MS, this was April of last year and I’m still waiting for a tribunal date and still waiting to be assessed for universal credits disability add on so I’ll be reading all your stories 😊 thank you for reading 💕 - clear
