My journey to be able to live… I’m being asked if I want to continue to get the help because I’m to sick to work… in truth I’m to sick to actually achieve daily functions … I’m talking about eating food an getting dressed.. let’s not discuss the washing situation.. or hair washing…
I’ve been waiting for this letter to drop on the mat for over two years… this is me going from (DLA) a lifelong award because of my illness to PIP the new benefits for the disabled…. it’s broken down into how much extra help you need to have to function in the real world… well in theory….
So I will explain at a later date because this blog is going to chart my journey…. how the process is causing real and serious harm to people….
I’m a fairly tenacious person.. I don’t let things affect me to much … but I’m going to be honest…. this has me feeling sick to the pit of my stomach… why you ask… I mean everyone says if you are genuinely ill you will be fine … just tell the truth… ummm that’s the rub …. it would seem that no matter how long you have been sick or how sick you are … or how much support you have .. or how many doctors you see ( I’m mostly to sick to go to the doctors) it makes no difference….
So I’m playing the waiting game now… I have to ring the DWP to tell them I definitely need to continue to receive help as I’m to sick to work… I will write more as things happen…
I did actually notice that I’m slightly relieved as the process has started… so the impending doom has lifted.. I’m in it now… it’s a rollercoaster…. can you imagine how it feels…. I know I’m not alone… thousands have gone before me …. but at this moment i feel very alone….
Thank you lovelies for listening to me … onwards and upwards ❤️
