    Hi @deab - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining, & for all your service in the army. You certainly must have seen so much in Iraq & Afghanistan, & the impact it has should be recognised. I hope you are now receiving any help & support you need. I'm sure you'll like this friendly & supportive forum & hope to see you looking around. If you fancy some light hearted chat & word games you may like our virtual 'Coffee lounge.' You're also welcome to join in with any discussions, or just chat here any time.

    Welcome to the community @deab :) Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself and your story so far. 

    Well done on getting the level of PIP you deserve on appeal- I can appreciate that won't have been an easy process. 

    Have you been receiving enough support since you left the army?

    I'm sorry that you haven't received any support so far, but it's good to hear that you're hopefully on the road to accessing some support @deab. The Veterans' Gateway also has some useful information about how and where to access support.
