How to Mansplain


Here we go again

Finally received the dreaded letter, the one DWP have been promising for so long.

Apply for PIP now or have my disability payment stopped within 2 weeks.


Once again, another point based assessment done by a non medical, non sympathetic person who’s aim at heart is to remove me from the system.

Not that I’m jaded or anything.



I wish I could go for a walk.

Technically I could, go for a hobble to the end of the road. But that’s not what I want, I want to go on a long walk. Through the beautiful greenery stretching out in front of me. I want to go for a long walk, like I used to.

Instead I’m here staring mournfully out through the window, remembering, longing, wishing I could be there instead of here.
