my wife has been summoned for a PIP assessment. this is because she has finally put autism on her claim and also as she has had to get sick notes from the dr to show universal credit that her condition means she cant work (even part time as im her full time carer) she cant go out alone, me or her mu...
some of the family are aware of her special needs but many of them are either very distant and wouldn't know or are very elderly and don't acknowledge that she has special needs.
hi thank you for all of your replies. my wife is desperate to read at the funeral as she wasnt allowed to read at her grandfathers. she wears glasses so with transition lenses, so sunglasses wouldnt work, but she wears sound generators in her ears to help with too much noise. i am going to be close ...
HI all, sadly my father in law passed away on Saturday following a 5 week stay in the ICU. he was admitted mid august following a brain aneurysm and after 2 brain surgeries he was stable. he then contracted a chest infection and was very unwell. he was unable to move his left side, talk or communica...

hi thank you for your reply. She totally understands the use and need for a hearing aid as she is aware the tv is waking the baby. I think the main worry is that it will be uncomfortable as she has told me she needs one that goes over the top of her ear as she cant stand the feeling of it just being...
my wife has been undergoing testing for her hearing as its slowly getting worse. we noticed that she was turning the tv up and was talking louder during conversations. now we have had several lots of testing, but the drs werent doing anything as in a controlled room with headphones on its not notice...
we have now swapped over to universal credit but i am so afraid as we are losing over £100 a month. its been nearly impossible before now to afford to live and now its going to be worse. plus my wife is being dragged through the system and its making her mental health so much worse.
