I’ve been awarded PIP!

So I never in a million years thought I’d be making this post, but it’s official: I got a message from the DWP this morning saying I’d been awarded PIP! I broke down in tears of relief and am still crying a bit now as I write this post. I can’t believe it. I feel seen and heard for the first time in my life. 

I’ve read horror stories about people having to fight, especially people with mental health issues, and it’s been the hardest few months waiting for a decision. I’m at rock bottom mentally but the fact that I’ll now be able to do things like pay for taxis to my medical appointments instead of my mum having to pay, and pay for my own medication is just fantastic.

I don’t know what else to say but the relief I’m feeling is indescribable.
