Applied 11th of may. They’ve now received my forms. I tried my best to fill them in as good as I could from reading online. If any of you would like to see I can send you them? 

It’s all mental health based. I was in an abusive situation for over 10 years and there’s not really any supportive evidence until December of last year when I reached out to my dr. It’s only now I’m admitting I have agoraphobia, and now ptsd. I know I’m out of the situation I was in but I spend most of my days barely existing, I can’t wait for it all to get better. 

I have explained this in the extra information part. Will this go against me? 

Thanks for reading

    Hi there and welcome 

    Sorry to hear what you have been through 

    Pip is all about your functionality to complete the tasks as detailed on your form 

    The best way is to give real examples of what happened last time you tried to do task 

    Putting extra info at the end won't go against you 

    Be prepared for a long wait tho for assessment as many people who applied in Dec are still waiting 

    You might be lucky depends on your area 

    Good luck keep us updated

    I think this is the worst I’ve ever been. I had a total break down in December but I’m determined to get my life back. 

    I’ve lost so much weight I’m just a constant wreck. 

    I’m on NI so it’s a waiting game. Thanks for your response and I hope you’re having a good evening
