Permanent Sciatica

facemask5 Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hello  - I want to apply for PIP as I stuggle with permanent sciatica due to an operation.   I can't see that the PIP questions apply to me so much but the condition really affects my live and where I go - every day.  I don't know how to even start writing - it's quite overwhelming because I can dress and wash myself but have been let go by my employers because I can't sit down for a long time to do my work.  There are no questions about this.  I struggle reading most of the time because I can't focus due to the medication - does this count?  Anyone been through similar or know where I can get some help?  Thanks
