    I’m sorry to hear you struggle with pain everyday my mam does too, have you applied for pip? If you already have it you might also be able to get money to help towards care you require I think it’s £68 approximately a week, I’m my husbands career but I don’t get carers as we’re still waiting for the pip decision

    Omg please tell me the only reason you haven’t been moved is that there is no suitable accommodation if that’s not the case I’m truly shocked that your left bedridden as you can’t use the stairs

    Hi @andreaowen75 and a warm welcome to the community! I am sorry to hear the amount of pain that you're in. Have you contacted your social worker about this? Also, we have a board about chronic pain that you may find useful :)
