I was going to make a post about this yesterday lol.

I know its very unlikely but if labour did get in I'd be over the moon, nobody would be able to take the smile of my face, I reckon if they did get in I'm going to get my bike out and do 100 mile cycle ride without stopping for a break.

Fucking ****ing bollocks.
Really looking forward to my PIP assessment next Monday. :cry:
:hug: I hope it goes ok and that you get your PIP :hug5:

I'm not looking forward to mine and trying to stay sane with other crap going is becoming hard to do.

I'm going to fight for my PIP and just hope I don't end up exploding. Never give up even if your PIP is refused you can appeal.

F**k this Tory government.

:hug5: :hug5: :hug5:

If I can't get anything for the mobility component, which from this, I wont - at the very least that's £120 less a month.

Honestly, makes you wonder what the fucking point in living is.
I'd quite happily attempt suicide if it weren't for my parents & sister.

I know how you feel, a lot of us are feeling the pressure, we just have to keep on fighting to get what we are entitled too. Giving up is a last result even if it means that we die trying. :hug5: :hug5: :hug5: :hug5:

I think its very important for us all to stay together, besides we are all in this together. I wish lots of people with mental health and disabilities should go and protest. Maybe others from the outside will realize the truth and come and join us as well. What the Tories are doing is despicable on so many levels.

I can see many tears, pain and despair in the coming general election, just like when Donald Trump got elected in the US.

Good luck to all of you moving from DLA to PIP.
My situation has worsened but the allowance has decreased
massively.
I had to have a home assessment because of various
problems, several being mental health.

This seemed to be "conveniently" (?) ignored.
Also, I was asked if I had £1 and spent 75p what would be left.
Because I answered 25p I was considered to have the ability to
cope with budgeting and shopping, paying bills etc
And so it continued with other aspects.

My allowance has been reduced by by £103 per month.

With cerebral atrophy and frontal lobe damage
plus major depression, social anxiety, avoidant and dependant personality disorders
agoraphobia etc I still am deemed fit.

If Theresa May is all for improving the lot of the mentally ill,as she claims, then why am I considerably worse off after transitioning to PIP,after factoring in inflation, than I was in 2010?
There are lots of other mentally ill people in the same situation.
The attacks against the mentally ill are particularly sociopathic.

did you tell them they had the diagnosis wrong that it wasn't schitzoprenic but social learning difficulty

there was something in the guardian were this learning difficulty carer guy was talking about that women having mental health and learning difficulties, he really wasn't understanding about mental health and was saying learning difficulties wasn't an illness, i thought benefits are for sick people innit

With Brexit and Britain becoming an independent nation again, if things go badly and we end up skint, will the PM have to apply to Europe for a kind of PIP for Britain? If we're a vulnerable country, it's to be hoped Europe doesn't necessarily apply current DWP practices in its assessment, isn't it :)

Why would they help us? If we weren't in Europe we would have to turn to the US, Donald Trump has already held hands with her, who knows what the terms of the loan would be.

It reminds me of Scotland in 1707. We were broke and England got us out of a hole. After we are independent there will be no going back, but if we are in Europe, we will get a bail out at a cost. There is no way we could get or even be offered a loan by rUK. If the SNP were in power they wouldn't allow it anyway. It would be too humiliating.

The sky hasn't fallen in yet over Brexit so if Labour can get in then maybe we won't need to go on the make unlike Theresa who has already rolled over for Trump. :eek2:

had some women turn up at my group asking if we were registered to vote, then this evening some labour guy rung the bell, was thinking these labour activists are hoping for a job in corbyns expanded state or at least not to lose theirs

and i#m under no illusions if they get that job how they'll treat me

Pollypop, I'm so sorry, this is so appalling to read. It makes me so sad and angry to read this.
Have you got a decent MP there? If so send them a copy if you feel up to it
love to you x
