Wow that is great. It is fantastic. Bless you.

I won the appeal :).

It was quite informal but because it was in the Court's we did go through a metal detector and our bags we're briefly checked. We were sat at a table and I was assessed by a social worker, a judge and a doctor and it took about 30mins. So screw you Crapita/DWP, I won in the end! The 'award' is for two years.

I'm glad it's over though, I'm going to use my back payments to pay for some therapy (I'll post more in my private thread).

Yet they used the fact that I have 'no specialist mental health input' against me! The thing is PIP is supposed to pay for help whether you actually get said help or not. They'll use any excuse against you so make sure you fight for what you need and deserve.  :hug1:

Have you got any help with  the MRC or budgeting yet?  :hug2:

That's a really cool idea. Though these particular ones aren't to my taste it has inspired me to try them as a cover up in the summer. I plan to get some permanent ones so may be I could experiment with some temporary ones to see what works. :)

Survivor Room / Temporary tattoos / butterfly project / distractions

I came across some temporary tattoos on etsy  link here that reminded me of the 'butterfly project'. explanation here. I wasn't sure if people would find it helpful. I'm sure there are many other places to get hold of similar things but they seemed like a good possibility because they are not obviously related to self harm, don't require you to draw anything and probably last longer than markers.

It is an overwhelming process unfortunately. Nobody should have to go through it.
