Never posted before, but I am going out of my mind worrying about the PIP assessment I’m having this afternoon.

I guess I am worried that they won’t understand the struggles I face daily. I cover it all up as much as possible to most people, I struggle to talk about or express my feelings and emotions to those closest to me how the hell am I going to be able to talk to a stranger and make them understand?

Chel - their focus is very practically based. I wonder if you made a copy of your form you submitted? I think you need to lay this matter aside till the morning and try and let sleep come x I will say what I think then. Please just get some rest. People will respond and you can pick up in the morning xx

Thank you, I’ve tried, but instead of laying there letting it play on my mind I thought it would be better to get up for a bit?

Yes I know what you mean. I am in bed. Struggling with insomnia which has been going on a while. There is a site called Benefits and Work. If you are going to be up you might want to look at their Forum. They have excellent advisers responding to all sorts of issues about PIP and other benefits. You will know, do you, that you need 8 points for an award? If your mental health is such that you need help with social situations then you ought to score 4 points for that alone! Anyway I am going off here now as it just keeps my mind going when I need it to be quiet. I will check how you are doing and comment more in the morning xx
