Good Morning all,
I have messaged a few times on here so please accept my apoligises if i repeat myself.
When i was a child i recieved DLA as i am a dwarf and had always had difficulties in day to day life.
I use to go to GOSH and Central Middlesex yearly regarding this and i was on growth hormones.
I am now 26 years old and suffer even more now ive become an adult... Walking ability is close to none on bad days and good days well..... its rougly 20 metres then having to stop.
I always need help at home to which i get from my family as i live at home... in this time ive had a walk in shower built at home as getting in and out the bath as it redeem to dangerous for me. My siblings and parents cook my food as the hob stands at face height and with pots and pans on top i cannot see what i am doing, i use to use a step to cook but that was until i slipped off the step and dropped the pan on the floor and burnt a hole in the lino.
I applied on 14th Oct for PIP as i want the independence to learn to drive but that isnt possible unless i have an adapted car which is required from mobility allowance.
I have no evidence nor do i have medication or treatments.
My GP is willing to write a letter explaining my good and bad days regarding my walking ability and the pain it causes everyday including constant back pain.
My inner thighs chaf together all the time due to my limbs which makes it ever more upsetting.
I write this asking roughly how long is the wait from them receiving the forms and me being asked for an assesment.
Ive never kept a day to day diary of this because i have always just got on with it... until the point where i cannot.
