Hi, I am Linda and new to this.
I am away to phone the PIP Dept for the first time, any advice much appreciated.
I had a stroke end of Oct 19, left with visual disturbance. My peripheral vision has been affected. Im left with a little disturbance to L eye and a Big disturbance to R eye. I can/allowed to drive, I tried back at work (Sept 20) but things got too much and had to leave. I can now cope and put up with everyday living as I have just learned to live with it and it is something you get used to But... Im no use walking in strange uneven places.
I also have short bowel syndrome, I have lived with this for years but this has been affected too.
Has anyone any advice for when I phone?
I am quite nervous to be honest.
Thank you in advance.
