Hi im new here , i have severe depression, Anxiety , severe asthma also chronic acid reflux pain which i am awaiting further investigations as the meds dont always work . I cannot go out on my own and i cannot stand being around people i dont know or large groups . i mostly keep myself locked away in the house , i suffer from really bad nightmares and so i dont always get much sleep an i am always fealing down n fatigued. i get stressed and worry and panic most often for no reason and cant explain why ,most times its thinking about having to go out as i cannot go on public transport my dad takes me to appointments  thats about all i can manage, i have had thoughts of suicide . i have SH a few times starting back in 1999 but i was only diagnosed in 2012, i only went to the dr that day as i was attacked by a group and had to get treated for a perforated ear drum due to being attacked. i applied for PiP and was awarded 0 points back in 2013 so i left it, but after reading comments here i have applied again on 01/09/2016 and given more information .

my kids have to help me around the house with chores my daughter often cooks as i just cannot bring myself todo it .  since sending off the form ive been through so many emotions the past few days from worried , stressed, tearfull , worthlessness .

      All I can say is good luck!!

      ?I have for the past 21 years had High Mobility & Middle Care of DLA.

      When I was told to transfer to PIP I checked on a well known website to see what award I should get. It came back saying no award due.

      ?Cut a long story short I claimed Attendance Allowance next ( a benefit similar to DLA without the Mobility element for those over 65). I honestly believed that I should get it - after the home assessment I was told by the DWP that I no longer have any care needs so no award.

      ?Still as disabled but hey ho, I suppose that is how things are today.
