This post is an amended version of something I posted last year.
This is a thank you to all who have supported me in my claim for PIP, and those who have become loyal readers of my BLOG. thechronicelephant.blogspot.co.uk The Blog was born as a result of the kind and thoughtful comments I received on PR- otherwise I would not have had the confidence.
