Finally, I get to write about how the most horrific 13 months of my life is over. This is no exaggeration, despite the abuse I've suffered in the past I would deem the last year much worse. I, like many others, faced the dreaded appeal process against the DWP's decision to stop paying my PIP … Continue reading My Sabbatical Is Over
It's been a minute since I last post and whilst this seems to be becoming a habit of mine, rest assured I'm going to be more consistent.
