    Hi @thespiceman
    Thanks for the welcome  :)

    So bogged down with all this PIP malarkey (doing my own renewal as well as son's change from DLA to PIP), but already had a few replies over on PIP and DLA which has put my mind at rest. 

    Husband and I are going out this morning, even it's just to sit outside a cafe (in the rain) to try to forget all for now  ;)

    This community looks like a great place to be and I hope to support others as well as receive support myself. 

    Taking my extra strong painkiller now to enable me to get out. I will be dopey but not in pain  :D  B)

    Have a good day yourself and thanks again for the welcome x
