Hi new here, found this forum after finding a thread on being messed about by PIP which is currently happening to me (!) But would also just like to chqt with some folk as I'm housebound with cfs and get a bit isolated. I'm in my 20s... but not doing many "young people " things! Not sure how this works so I'll just leave this here x

    Yes it is, he is called Toby. Do you have any pets?  Sorry to hear you have had a stressful day do you want to talk about it? It is fine if you don't. Take care.  
    Toby is a great name. I have a big black and white cat called Onyx who sits on me a lot :)
    Ah I'm good thanks, just I was meant to have my PIP assessment but the call cut off or something - been hell trying to work it out, I've been given another call time now but worried the same thing will happen. Something wrong with my phone maybe idk! I was already anxious about the assessment haha. But hopefully I'll have got it all out of the way by the end of the week.,..
