i get personal independence payment with schitzoprenia, it helps to word things right rethink has a leaflet and the benefits and work web site i recommend

did have a few problems with dla rethink helped, you learn it's how you word things, if the clarks consider you deserving they still have to be given an excuse to tick the relevant boxes to make up the points

notice the head of shelter predicting a milllion homeless by 2020, guess she's expecting problems with universal credit etc

i phoned up ciyizens advice said i was schitzoprenic and needed benefit help. the guy said he'd spoken to his boss and couldn't help me told me to phone mencap, i said it's a totally different illness for gods sake, he said you don't have to swear, probably a god freak

i phoned mencap a while ago told them citizens advice had suggested them, they said to phone up citizens advice and point out they had a contract to provide benefit support, i did phone citizens advice when my savings were questioned they were helpful

i live by myself and are totally dependent on benefits no family or any support, feel in those circumstances i need the money

I filled in the paperwork with help from my friend and submitted it without any backup letters or anything else. I got PIP without having to go for an interview.

Right on Passionflower that is great news. Who is your friend? lol he or she must be good lol dang it I hope I get my PIP once my DLA comes to an end I've got the support of my mental health day center tho.

Dadgumit I'm dreading the day I get the brown envelope of doom which will be soon thats for damn sure.
