Hi Brian,

Very sorry to hear just how many tough illnesses you are contending with.

Re PIP: from my husband and a number of other CCHers I have gained quite a lot of knowledge about applying for PIP, the relevant points for those with CH, how the system is supposed to work, and what to do when it doesn't behave the way it should.

I have been meaning to write up some notes that might help people with CH making PIP applications, and seeing your post has kick started me into typing up something that I hope to be able to email to you in a couple of days.

Harriet.
