pip assessor coming to house, son has variable condition
basically my son age 25, has same condition as me, it is genectic. He gets a lot of pain, exhaustion and has to pace himself, he does not go out socially as he uses what energy he has to work 3 sometimes 4 days a week.He has worked same place over two years now, sometimes been unwell, but always gets round it, he is like old man at home and rests up . he does not like taking pain meds at work and sometimes is so stiff with pain. He has trouble eating, gastric problems, dizziness, unsteady on his feet, joint pain. he is 25 going on 60. He is good at his job, his boss does not understand when he is unwell. he tried working more hours and collapsed with pain and exhaustion. he did get very depressed about things, have applied for pip, assessor coming to house. how to explain ,just be totally honest, he conserves his energy for work then rests all the time at home,would that be ok to say ? He has to have plenty of time to get dressed,toilet,etc
