PIP And Colostomy
Hi first sorry about putting a lot of post up but after going to see my counsellor who offers me this practical advice to help me get things down in words to help me to keep it off my mind as much so this is it after going to my PIP assessment this is just one thing is it me who is wrong or the assessment who are right on Managing toilet needs or incontinence at the assessment I was asked if I had problems to which the answer is yes like if I do go out I have to go out with bags back plates wipes and some more clean clothes to put on if my bag comes off or leakage as I have know control of my stoma it works and I do not know tell I look at or feel my bag and it can just come off to then there is the problems at night and working in bed and not know tell you smell it and have to get up and get clean then in the morning have to ring my sister to help strip my bed and help clean it as I have know grip in my hands with my rheumatoid arthritis and then there is the problems with parastomal hernias that give you a blockage and have to go to hospital for mesh and with how much mesh I have you can feel it and in pain all the time with it and then there are the skin problems like ulcers that are hard to get rid of with your back plates not sticking on right so is it me that is wrong or the assessment that is wrong and the PIP Mandatory Reconsiderations that go with the assessment and do not look at letters form my Doctor and the Hospital and still go with the assessment so for the Managing toilet needs or incontinence after telling the assessment to put in there report that I have know problems you toilet needs or incontinence and know aids in this and give me ( 0 points ) so is it me who is wrong or the assessment that is wrong and if you are going to a PIP assessment or going on to PIP put in the form that you like them do a to recording the assessment with one for you and one for them and get a letter form them with yes on it to recording your PIP assessment and so that they do not put a fast one on you and when you get you assessment date and were to go ring them and tell them you have a letter that your assessment as to be recording with one for you and them hope this bit will help someone going for a PIP assessment as at this time I am getting to the point just giving up and just thinking end it all the one thing that stops me is my sisters and upsetting them as to is there something more that they my have done I will not let them do that to me and upset my sisters know way just have to go to the tribunal which is now at just over 12 months and still in the line for the tribunal. Thank you and sorry about the last part and the rant but just had to put it down in words so sorry and Thank you.
