PIP Review eek!

So I have received the dreaded brown envelope because it’s review time, I’ve had no change in my condition since my award and after being refused PIP and having to fight tooth and nail for it before I’m terrified of it happening again! I’m worried that I’ll have to go through the appeals process or ...

Re: Why am I so socially awkward

I’ve noticed I’m socially awkward as well but I’m aware of it nowadays whereas in the past I wasn’t. I normally wait to be approached because I feel awkward approaching people

Re: Help for adults

I got that a lot following a diagnosis of depression and anxiety, anything I said or did was included under that umbrella. I could have broken my leg and the doctor would be like ‘it’s because you have depression’

Re: Movie characters who might be dyspraxic

I thought about this earlier, I always found Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter) to have dyspraxic traits (falling off the broom, losing his toad a lot and forgetting things) however I might be wrong

Re: Help for adults

That’s interesting to know, especially when I thought I was the only one that noticed it. It feels like although I have adapted relatively well I feel that I still need some help.

Re: The Underground

It terrifies me to no end, I constantly look at the tfl website for routes to avoid them, I only venture to the O2 and the Excel centre because they’re the only places that I know of that it isn’t necessary to use an escalator when getting the train.

Re: The Underground

I have always been a bit funny with them which kind of escalated (get it?) as time went on to the point I can’t even look at a picture of one.
