TOPIC: DLA to PIP help

DLA to PIP help 3 weeks 6 days ago #201455

Hello everyone,
My heart felt sympathy goes out to ALL of you that have been through this what I can only describe as TRAUMA! I have had my invite to apply for PIP I'm currently on High rate Mobility Middle rate care.
I'm SO CONFUSED. I really are at my whits end with it I have had my paper booklet and I'm trying to fill this in just don't know where to start! how does my disability affect me I could go on forever but if it is what they are looking for lord knows. I'm tending to put everything together but it is going of the subject, I'm waffling on. I'm worried as well because I don't use very many aids. It is cauda Equine Syndrome. Basically damage to spinal nerves constant pain I have periods of going off my legs, can't even stand material or water touching my skin at times. It is the actual physical action of movement, so almost all of these aids are somewhat usless to me, I have to rely heavily on my husband. First will this affect the points I could score, also how would you describe your moving around and getting out and following simple directions. Is there anywhere to look at maybe examples for ideas of how to explain yourself because I am useless at it! I'm saying alot but telling them nothing Any advise please? BFORE I CRACK.

Many Thanks

Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explain where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?


I've moved your post to it's own topic, we ask members not to post their questions in other's topics as it can lead to the wrong advice being given or taken.

I would start by reading our PIP Claim on the following link, it explains the criteria against which you are being assessed and how to frame your answers.

If you have further questions then please reply to this post and we will do our best to help.

Hi Gordon,
So sorry to be sounding thick but i cannot see your link, I can see welcome to benefits and work which is question and answers and I can see about my full name, which I cannot navigate my way around changing this again (sorry) I go into profile as it instructs but cannot see any edit on the right button. Then there is I have moved my post to its own again I didn't even know I had posted it on someone elses post. Then you advise to follow the following link but I can't see one. Sorry for being hard work Gordon.
Thanks
