Do you have a copy of the address to which you sent the PIP forms? If so, this is where you should send the additional info.

If you do not have a copy of the address, you can contact ATOS here

Ok thanx Mrs H. The forms went back to a Wolverhampton address. So I will send the extra there. On letter with pip form sent to me the letter was letter headed dwp and wolverhampton address same as return adress for pip form. Have completely had enough now got to stage now I just don't care anymore, have just had a melt down. Tried to contact mental health services cos just so overpowered by it all. Can't get thru, all I get is music as if u ringing a bank or building society or something and merrily asking u to leave message. Confined back to bedroom with curtains shut. Family won't help, am not allowed to talk about all that is troubling me. Sorry to ramble am at end o tether. Stopping all this nonsense now, going to eat as not been able to eat for days. Thanx agen!

Stay strong, Porthole Pete. At least we are all in the same boat here, so when you 'ramble' we all fully understand why, and I know that I for one often need t o ramble, or rant in my case!

Thanx Mrs H, Amanda, sorry for blast off yesterday. I do feel so selfish for that as I know u all have your own problems too. Many tImes when I read your posts I try to reply to them but I'm afraid at the moment my thoughts can't often be expressed in2 words, because all this form filling has left me unable to find the words and I abandon the reply. I feel totally crushed by what is going on. Very bad nite last nite, panicked state all nite, only about 2 hrs sleep max this morning. Tried calling mental health team when woke up, ansa machine again, 'ur call is important to us'. What? Are these people for real? My poor squashed mind is far too fragile at the moment to be entrusted to these people. As stated in a previous post I have moved back to an area where mental health services seems to have not moved on from the 70's, from an area that was the total opposite in every way imaginable. The ESA assessment isn't for another 12days yet and I am having panic attacks about it already. I really wish now I had not bothered applying for pip, I am only gettin low care dla £21+ a week and at a push I could just about manage without it. I feel I should have concentrated more on my ESA claim as this is the most important one to me. I listened to a friend too much who kept saying he thought I would qualify easily for pip, but the process of applying has drained me so completely that now I have nothing left in the tank to fight for my ESA. Sorry sorry sorry to go on but no one else to rant to, no one else gives a s..t! My own family won't allow me to talk about it and end up shouting at me if I do, so I have decided to do without them for now as no support is better than negative support! Rite that is my rant finished!! Love to u all, and hope today brings good news to every one awaiting that dreaded brown envelope! Also sorry for txt speak, bad habit I know!!
