Regret applying for PIP
Hi, i went to my pip assessment start of april, which i found very demeaning, was glad when it was over, as the stress and worry was overwhelming bout the whole thing, i had a psychiatrist appointment end of april, this has me in a worse state ever, im diagnosed bipolar2 and ADHD, my mental health has got worse instead of better, at the stage im hearing voices, self harming and seeing things, it tk alot for me to inform my psychiatrist bout this, i did so this day, i hadn't slept in 4 days, couldn't, my head was 1000mph constant with being so scared to say,i had my head completely melted, anyways i did inform her, in total despair, my anxiety through the roof, as i just couldnt take how everyday living was for me, i dont know wat happened, as she started asking me all these questions like where i got my tan, which i thought bizzare, i rent out sumbeds now n gain, esp for my skin, i told her this, then she asked bout money, then was i getting dla or pips, i told her im waiting on decision for pips, wanted to know all bout it, asked me bout housework, was my house clean, do i have friends, socialize, bout my son, who im ashamed to say, cares for my needs, should be me him, being a mother, was he working, or getting care allowance for me, or is that wat he looking, i was just all over the place, it ended in her reducing my ADHD meds, as i was shaking n that said sure not working, and weaning me off my bipolar meds, as arnt working, i was in a total state, i couldnt believe it, ive not handed the form she give me to give to the docs to come of these, as im so scared to, im scared for myself and how my mental health will be without them, fgs, but i can't help think now my psychiatrist has contacted pips, as i rang today, my report till wasnt sent till 1st may, and then something bout can take up to 10 workings days, got told received it on 17th may, i honestly can't get my head round it all, im sorry I've even applied for pips now, as instead of helping, its just F'd with my mental health worse than ever
