hi all, im new to this group.Im just after some advice to be honest, im so dissapointed ive just been told i dont meet the criteria for p.i.p, im gutted as ive never claimed for anything before and ive suffered with severe back pain for 9 years now and only just applied for p.i.p. my day to day life now is very limited what i can do with extreme pain or lots of help from my husband. i cannot dress my lower half of body or tie shoes or but boots on, i cannot to daily chores properly so alot of it falls on my hubby, i cannot walk far,i cannot sit for any length of time or stand for any time so work wouldnt be an option,im on 3 different lots of medication each day, sometimes im so drugged up i want to go to bed by 6pm but with kids thats not an option,i cannot bath my kids without it causing great pain,i have to get on my knees to get something in or out of oven,and surely thats dangerous,i sometimes need help getting in and out of the bath.All the things i cannot do and the constant use of pain relief is really getting me down and im always getting upset now,my quality of life now is at an all time low,and then when i finaly bite the bullet i get refused.Im so upset the the fact that they dissregard the amout of pain im in,my xray result said loss of lumbar lordosis but im still not 100% what that is, google has confused me!! do i just accept what dwp have said or is it worth fighting,i dont want the added stress if the outcome will be the same.any advice hugely appriciated xx
