Hi, my name is suebedoo!

suebedoosuebedoo Member Posts: 6 Listener
I've recently been awarded lower rate daily living component & lower rate mobility via pip. I've had ongoing back issues for around 3 years, I have degenerative disc disease in my lower spine aswell as scoliosis and foraminal narrowing and a tilted sacrum. I have chronic polyarthropathy, clinical depression and chronic otitis externa.
I'm currently in the work focused esa group. There's little I can do due so much pain & I can't walk very far. My medication makes me drowsy and constantly tired. I'm doing a few courses at home, which I've used some of my pip allowance for & purchased some courses through one of the many saving groups like Wowcher and Groupon.
I'm really unsure what else I'm entitled to, especially as I'm a local authority tenant and also have debts from having to cease work. I worked in catering and really enjoyed that, as I can no longer do that type of work, I'm studying diet and nutrition and.also creative writing. As I'm hoping to eventually be able write articles
