    "I can't deal with forms and stuff".

    And there we have the problem. If you suffer from poor mental capacity and also a disability that was deemed serious enough for enhanced rate dla indefinetly then how could you possibly fill in such life changing legal do uments such as pip forms.Add in the fact that you have no one else to turn to and things must look grim. Your best bet would be your local council welfare officer, if such a person is available in your local council, or CAB, they may be able to help.

    You must ring dwp and ask for more time to return forms if you feel you need to, don't leave it or you will lose it.

    You could see if there is someone from a local MIND group who can help you.

    Also Citizens Advice Bureau are sometimes good.

    Have you got a social worker or a carer?

    There is help out there it is just a question of knowing where to turn.

    Dependilng on your age thee may also be appropriate organisations you can go to.

    Hope this helps.

    Take care and keep in touch
