I am going to be applying for pip.
Hi i am going to be applying for PIP, i am a full time carer solely look after my 16 year old son who has high disability rate for Autistic Spectrum Disorder,ADHD, and ODD. I have Fibromyalgia, CFD, Fibrositis, IBS, Classic Migraines, Depression, Anxiety, and Osteoarthritis in my knees, neck, right wrist and back, i do not have any help in my house, my family live so far away from me that they cannot help me. I need two walking sticks to help me walk i cannot walk far so i am house bound. I have special equipment to help me in the house, stair chair, wet room, handrails, chairs for bathroom, and kitchen, toilet seats, and a step put ouside my front and back door. I have heard so many people turned down for PIP and had to go to a tribunal. I have been told to apply for it to get the help i need, i not applied for it before as i thought being a full time carer would prevent me claiming Pip, but my Anxiety does nofmt help as i get so nervous and over think.
