TOPIC: Thanks Gordon and Hurtyback! I have done it!!!!

Thanks Gordon and Hurtyback! I have done it!!!! 7 months 2 weeks ago #170322

Hello Benion, I was so pleased to hear you got such a good result. I agree it is a horrible experience. Like yourself I was quite stable before this sorry saga started. My mental health also deteriorated greatly over the last six months or so and yes its amasing just how quickly one starts to go downhill. I am finding it really hard to relax and get back into any sort of routine as I can't even remember what my routine was before being made to deal with all this and it becoming so totally overwhelming and debilitating. My ESA assessor had, I'm sure, a good understand of mental health issues and I was put into support group, no messing. However I don't think my Pip assessor had a clue and I was given nil points, although we all know DWP insist they are qualified.

Anyway I am really glad to hear you are so much better now and I hope you continue to stay that way! All the best, take care! Regards PP :) :) :)
