TOPIC: Emotionally unstable personality disorder

Emotionally unstable personality disorder 11 months 1 week ago #175830

I'm freaking out now! :S

I just googled the place I need to go and it's a physiotherapy clinic!
It deals with sports injuries etc, I'm terrified of the people that will be there and probably looking down on me :(

I found 2 reviews of the place on this website and it doesn't sound good! :(

I really hope that the hp I see understands mental health issues!!

I am so bloody scared, I might just stop my claim for pip! I haven't got my support worker yet, I can't cope with this at all! I'm struggling to breathe :sick:

If you give up now then all of the anxiety, work and lost sleep will be for nothing, try and put it in it's place, this is just another hoop you have to jump through to get your award. :)

Thank you so much Gordon!
You are completely right, I won't give up! I just wish it wasn't so stressful having to deal with all this.
I honestly couldn't do it without B&W!!
I hope once I have my medical that I won't be waiting too long for the decision, if I am unsuccessful this time I won't just leave it, I will do the MR and appeal if needs be! I never bothered to ask for an appeal when I got turned down for dla years ago, I just accepted it!

I am wondering if I should tell the person that does my medical that when I was sectioned the psychiatrist there told me I'm not to work or even think about working, I need to concentrate on getting better and not push my self, she said it's going to take years for me to finally get better, she said I am going to need years of therapy to change the way I think, my personality is wired wrong. I don't know if they will care about that or not?

I did put her down on the form for them to contact for information.

I am worried I won't tell them everything I need to, I always end up confused and forget things, would it be bad if I write everything down and take it with me?

Thank you again for making me see sense Gordon! X

Hi Walker,

I'm glad you are feeling a bit more positive now.

If this is relating to a PIP claim the assessor will not be interested in any comments about your ability to work. It is entirely possible to be in receipt of enhanced rates of PIP and also work full time!
