Has anyone else had to wait for months and months for an assessment foR pip? Personal idepeNdance payment.
I applied in october 2013 , i was asked to complete two forms one 40 pages long, one 28 pages. I duly returned them and was told (when I called) that i would be contacted when they had an appointment. I have not heard from them for months now. My PD is getting worse, i have difficUlty in the simplest of tasks now, washing my Hair , bathing,repsaring food are all dificult. i hsve terrible dyskynesia. my eriting is terrible , i fond using a Phone dufficult as i slur my speech.
Some days i feel like i am a burden on society as i cannot be reliEd on to contribute. ibwas oNce a smart , englissh teacher, now i am in debt to my mortgage company, feel embarrassed by my appearence and really find it hard to keep aSking for help.
My Consultant wants me to Consider dbs i am really worried tHat i will become more dependant on others and because of my difficulty in looking after myself i worry about aftercare.
I live on my own now as my husband didnt understand the fluctuation in my condition, my daughter tries to help but has a todldler to look after.
i Was diagnosed 13 years ago (43). I Worked up until last year.Any advice
out there would be gratefullY ly received.Sorry to winge.
