CFS/M.E. 4 months 1 week ago #174059

Hi i just want to post about having success with applying for pip and ESA support growp for CFS. As i had a long stressful time over a year but i finally got the reward dealt with good outcome. It is possible as cfs is being more recognized now. After suffering it for a few years. With other health problems. I was referred to a cfs specialist clinician through my supportive G.P. there i receive all the support and a plan that really takes into account my actual reality of day to day functions. Not what others perceive us to manage. Where she teaches me to slow down. Do only small tasks i can manage at a pace that suits me better.

I just wanted to say to all others out there not to give up. Feeling no one believes in it. Help is there just need to keep seeing G.P for referrel to a specialist. From there it is possible to get letters to support claims for there entitlement for help benefits. Love to here any more good storys out there feedback to encouage us along to getting better thanks.
