That is a good move. Itís better to have the support to start than to try and deal on your own and be a wreck before youíve started. I hope Iím not outta line by saying that....? Just going on my own experiences with this sorta thing.....sorry.

And, sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is a PA? Just donít want to assume anything and dig myself a hole one day....

Personal assistant. It's like having a support worker.

Ah I see. I thought it was, but I didnít know you can get one. Is it through CMHT or something completely different?

Something completely different. I get a personal budget through the council that pays for my support. I have 2 Pas a week. One helps me sort my flat out and the other does social stuff with me.

Ah, that is a good idea. Do you get on well with them?

I do get on with them ok. I find the one I go out with can be a bit full on sometimes. Especially if we doing anything in the home. The other one is a bit more chilled.

I have been to my appointment today and filled out my pips form. It wasn't very nice going through stuff but I did ok.

That is good. It is important that you get on with them.
I'm glad it's sorted. One less thing. Good going :)

Now it's the waiting game to see what they decide. My biggest fear is that I won't get pips. Then I worry how I will afford my daily living costs. I only work part time minimum wage! But there is nothing I can do now.

It is the longest wait, but I hope they consider your application thoroughly
