But I never left, I was always right here.
I’ve been kind of quiet recently just trying to get my head down and get on with, well, life! Despite knowing nearly 2 years ago the chaos PIP would cause, then living through my own battle with them and eventually winning, still nothing has changed with how they handle this horrendous system. Stories are still coming out every day about how disabled people are becoming housebound, having to give up work and struggling to get through day to day life.
And now there is a new evil on the block, Universal Credit. Everyone is aware of how badly this is administered but yet they continue to roll it out. And again, they have no idea what MS is! Asking me if it was terminal was not a nice thought to have in my head for the rest of the day but that’s what happens when a benefits system that you may need due to a medical condition is administered by someone with no medical background. So I’ve applied for it as my health has detioriated so badly since going through the PIP process that I’ve had to go part time at work.
Already we’ve been down to the job centre twice with info and we have to go back next week with more. All this work and no money till at least mid November. Dunno how they think people like me survive!
Don’t wanna come on here just to moan, although it is the best place to do it! Let’s see how this will play out!
