    I don’t think so at the moment, it’s just nice to have somewhere if needed. I’m awaiting a decision from PIP mandatory reconsideration after it got stopped in July. 
    I’ve never been sure if I should class myself as disabled or not. My condition is getting worse and it’s hard to accept I guess

    It is difficult coming to terms with a new diagnosis/a disability. I think the hardest part to accept is what our limitations are now because of it, and trying to find new ways to adapt. It's normal to feel like this, we all have been through this or currently are going through it. Take it one day at a time, otherwise it will become overwhelming. We'll always be here for you and help you in any way that we can :)

    Hi @Linzims - & welcome to this friendly & supportive community. A disability is anything that means you are less able to do something than before, so don't worry about that. You have had some great advice from Ami, so all I will add is that is that yes, we will be here to support you if needed as far as your PIP claim goes, but we are here too to listen at any time as Ami says. Please use this forum to chat, ask questions, absolutely anything. :)
