This is my first time ever posting anything so bare with me lol. I have made a claim for PIP after being advised to by my support worker. I'm not sure if my condition is something that can be claimed for. I have been diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, Depression, Emotionally unstable, Split personality disorder borderline, andssomething beginning with S Syndrome. I also can't be trusted to eat and have to be prompted and supervised when doing so also I have social phobia severe anxiety and panic attacks so I am unable to go out. I even get a text ffrom boots when my prescriptions are ready. I also haveto be ssupervised when taking my meds as I take extreme levels of laxatives and need to be reminded to take my anti depressants. I also have my friend to bring me shopping as i ccan't fface interacting with people face to face. This is all due to bad things that have happened to me and I am going to be receiving CBT therapy and have been referred to an eating disorder clinic too. I'mjust rreally anxious about this whole process really and I had an appointment for my medical assessment due tomorrow but they cancelled it! I phoned pip and explained that I have problems with going out and if I send them all evidence and diagnosis could they consider making a decision without an assessment I was told to send it in and see. I ddon'tsee how they can see mental health issues by seeing you anyway..... but I also have a lot of pain in my stomach and other bits due to the ddamage my anorexia has caused and laxatives some days I can'tget out of bed. i know im an idiot what I'm doing to myself but I can't stop. II'vealso got to have an op coz of it. Can anyone please give me there opinion or similar experience with claiming for any of these conditions as I was never going to claim in the first place. Sorry to go on and on and bore u with my problems lol.
Thanks for reading :-)
