Dear all

Just thought I'd share with you the really good news I got this morning. Decision maker from DWP phoned want to clarify a couple of points to be able to make a decision. My husband was going from DLA to PIP voluntary due to a change of circs. Doing the submisdiom took so much of my energy I not surprisinglya "crash". I asked if sge could tell me when I might hear the result.  Not only did she tell me 3 to 5 working days for letter but to stop my husbands anxiety getting worse she told me the result. On DLA he had top rate mobility and middle rate care. On PIP he will het enhanced mobility and enhanced!! clap

Its such a relief to have such a big thing out of the way. Philip's anxiety has been really difficult to manage through it all.

Now I just need to do all the paperwork to get the care package up and running and I can have some well deserved "me" time.

Hi Eliz,

I'm sorry, I can't remember if this has been suggested to you before, but have you considered CBD oil for Philip? I know it's helped many people with anxiety issues, sometimes dramatically. Like everything, it doesn't work for everyone, but it does for most.

Yes, 'me' time - you deserve it and you need it. I hope you get it very soon.

Hi Roger

Yes Philip does have Cbd oil for his CRPS and I would have thought it would help with his anxiety but it doesnt seem to. He's already on the highest dose allowed of sertraline and a high dose of propanolol
