Monday morning I went to Dr’s for routine blood cholesterol check
Tuesday cook possibly last full-English I ever see and taste
Wednesday afternoon went back for results, and cholesterol going down nicely (so Dr tells me!) ← ‘OK’, family history
Then I hear the “by-the-way” your showing Vitamin D as low (score 16 and should be 50 plus) ← ‘OK-ish’, I have SP-MS
Also you’re showing signs of being pre-diabetic (I wasn’t expecting that one!) ← ‘not OK’, but what am I going to do?
With bad mood setting in I go home and buy a years supply of Vitamin ‘D’ 3,000 UI tablets (£12.97) and years supply of Biotin 10,000 mcg softgels (£14-97), with a wider plan to eat more Omega-3 oily fish ← so bring it on! ← I’m feeling sorted!
Thursday morning post arrives with DWP stamped envelope ← got cocky and completed the PIP forms myself sometime ago (“stupid is as stupid does” I hear you say?)
So been waiting on result following home assessment done 3 weeks ago by a nice Capita assessor
Friday morning text from bank showing an unexpected deposit
I did take away one tip from this MS site’s posts about keeping things factual and include medical reports, so included first diagnosis report ( by Radcliffe neuro almost 20 years ago) and report by current local neuro that wrote directly in comparison to Radcliffe report
Along with Assessor report to seal the deal - I got PIP (standard rate for both disability and mobility for next 3 years before further review, so I’m made up for Christmas
