So confused about PIP

Postby pkd1272 » Wed May 29, 2013 6:53 pm

Hello I have read through a lot of the posts on here but am so confused sorry. My friend is a Occupational Therapist and said I should apply for PIP but I cant work out if I would qualify. On a bad day I have to use crutches around the house and my husband does all the cooking, child care & house work. If we plan on days out I have to use crutches and sometimes a wheelchair as walking for more than 1 -2 hours means I'm in massive amounts of pain for days. This is permanent wether having a good or bad pain day.
On good days I manage to do the cooking using a stall as I cant stand for more than 10minutes without pain.

I'm scared that if I apply for PIP and have a good day and can walk without crutches that I would be done for fraud. I am so confused about wether to apply or not. Any help and advice would be great thank you. :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:
