    Hi there 

    Sorry to hear you have suffered from covid 

    There is no need to inform pip as the condition needs to have been there for 3 months and expected to last another 9 months 

    Remember pip is about the ability to perform tasks and not diagnosis 

    You should always get expert advice before reporting any changes and unless the changes are likely to get you a higher award there is no point

    Hello @Ella1234125

    Welcome to the community, I'm glad to see you join us. 

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had issues since developing Covid, sadly it has impacted a lot of people long-term and hopefully in time there will become more support available. I hope the above reply has been helpful about PIP.

    Can I ask, do you receive any support to manage your mental health?
