I recently received the dreaded brown envelope in the post: the verdict from my Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessment. I had been told it could take up to 8 weeks for a decision to come through, so I wasn’t expecting anything for a while yet…
Generally, I don’t talk about my private life online, but I recently had an unpleasant experience that has distressed me enough that I feel the need to write about it.
I’m not writing with the intention that monumental change is going to follow or that nobody else will ever have to go through something similar. I don’t have a loud enough voice for that sort of thing. This is purely a statement on how it made me feel because I need to get it off my chest in detail.
