    Hi Poppy123456
    I hope I will be able to chat with you tomorrow regarding Pip and ESA. I can’t struggle with the lack of communication from the above Benefits on my own any more. It’s so soul destroying 
    I have been tearful after the conversation with Pip Adviser. However I feel more secure knowing someone will listen to me now. I will be back on tomorrow
