Hi @Sofia1 join Benefit & Works as SSUE suggested as they are very helpful also yes take the PIP test.
PIP. Stands for Personal Indepependant Payment.
its down to how dependant are you on aids, support etc. What aids you use, how you cope day to day.
I even took a photo of all my aids and explained why i used them lol.
You have proof i am assuming a neurologist saw you in hospital to give you the diagnose and should have followed up with contacts of MS nurse (they can help). the hopsital admission letters and LP report all these things ok. But now you have been discharged who have you been discharged too?
I found its best to describe your worse day as MS is variable as you know. Falls should be documented, i.e. I use a rollator in the house to stop me falling etc as i fall easily… I am not safe on my own walking so have help because of getting dizzy. Document it. I am assuming you have all these safety things in place… How do you cope with personal care, dressing do you use aids etc. Can you cook safely, understand budgeting, can you plan a journey (mobility), that is why i suggest you do the test. Its quite an eye opener and has changed since I did it a few years back.
Your GP should support you.
The point is why do you want to apply for PIP? iT is very stressful to do so. I warn you of that. perhaps go first with application for a blue badge, or contact adult social services and tell them you have been diagnosed with MS and in a relapse can anyone help you…they can send someone to do a care assessment and this care assessment can help with the PIP application, and they may also advise you have an OT assessment sounds to me you should have one.
whatever you decide good luck. If your not using safety stuff i would urge you too, it doesnt make you more disabled, it STOPS YOU FROM GETTING MORE DISABLED…I.E. preventing falls etc. xxxxxx
