Hi Jackie, I’m so sad to read about what you are going through and how you are feeling, I wish I could HUG you. You know the saying when the going gets tough, the tough get going well that’s what you need to do now, but you need some help to get tough first. Get in touch with CAB or a local disability organisation and explain about your PIP situation and get them to help you reapply as that way at least it will help your financial situation. PIP have a lot to answer for putting people like you into dire situations and that’s without everything else you are going through. Thinking of you, Maz (((HUGS)))
