not feeling good
Hi, I posted a week or two ago now about my situation and got some great responses but things are just getting worse. I applied for pip in feb after getting my esa suspended as I enrolled into uni. I do most of my work from home and it has m]helped me clear my mind, I study art and most of my student finance goes to equipment so I can work from home. Meanwhile, during my telephone assessment, I was given 6 points for living allowance and 4 for mobility so I did a MR on the 5th June. I’m still waiting to hear back and things have progressively got worse, my mum has had to stay home to stop me ending my life as these thoughts keep occurring and my mental health has just gone out of the window. I feel like I need to leave uni just so I can get by as this whole process is making me panic and I’m so worried for myself and the future. Could someone please tell me the current success rates of mr with 6 points and how much longer I’d be looking to hear something and how long tribunals are taking as I want to prepare myself for that too and will things get backdated? I’m in so much debt and everything’s just going downhill and I really don’t know how long I can hold on for. I’m so sorry for the rant but I’m desperate and quite frankly. Scared.
