Oh thank you so much for your kind words. Was sat here feeling so down, confused, and the rest, you know what I mean. Your msg has just given me a boost, so thanx for that. Have been beating myself up a bit thinking it can't be normal to take so long getting this flaming pip form filled out. Having to explain mental health issues in almost every activity has dragged the life out of me. Would have been much easier to write once about mental health and say how it affects your daily living, but oh no that would be far too easy. You end up having to talk about it over and over again. Chasing doctor round for letters, forget it, am sending letters from last doc and mental health team. Older letters but well detailed.

Am lucky with upcoming ESA assessment I have an advocate to come with me, phew! Could not have gone on my own!

Was good to hear your latest assessment wasn't as bad as u expected and you got thru it in one piece, well done! Hope you get a favourable result. Once again thanx for your post. Take care

Ps. And yes you are so right, it is exhausting and distressing! And it shouldn't be allowed to continue.

When it comes to those big forms with their big blank boxes....well, I'm an expert at avoidance! B)
But it sounds like you're making real head way! Just KNOW that it will get done and you'll be fine. We're all in this together and none of us are alone, no matter how bad we're feeling on any particular day. :)
