    Sorry to hear that you've felt really low lately, do ensure you go back to your GP to request further support if you ever feel as though what you currently have isn't enough.

    What are you up to this weekend? :)

    That sounds lovely, how was the park? 

    Well during the day today and tomorrow I'll be on the community but tonight I think it's a movie night with my partner. Not sure what we'll be watching yet, something on Disney or Netflix I imagine.

    Bless you @yacine99 no need to feel like that when your part of the gang now ha ha.
    I noticed you on another chat about pip.
    I to have arthritis and i have a lot of problems with my back, we all have our own little demons, but being part of the community is the best thing i've done for a while 
    Even in the middle of the night there may be others that have problems with sleep, they come on site and perhaps have a chat with others that are awake or if it's quiet on line have a good brows around.

    Funny you should say that @yacine99 i have just had my very 1st assessment for my 1st time applying for pip.
    I don't know how it works, but on your other thread/chat you were answered by someone in the know.
    You could have a browse under categories and read other members threads/chats on pip, you will be suprised by the amount of people that ask/talk about it but don't pay to much attention to any negatives you might read i know it's life but it doesn't always help us.

    Yep mine was over the phone - i know how bad i feel and how it's affected my life so it will be what it is. (thats how my brain works ha ha)
    I have been on long term sick from work since last September, i used to be the sort that would even go to work with a bad cold.
    Think this is the end of my work days now, i will be collecting my state pension next year.

    Look up on this page/thread you should see Categories (i'm on a laptop so i hope it's the same for phones)
    Press on that you will come to different box's like welcome, coffee lounge etc ( i'm nearly always in there ha ha)
    When you see the box you might be interested in ie PiP related, press the heading and you will go in to different chats, just have a play you can't break any thing ha ha - good luck @yacine99
