Hi, just wondering if possible for some Advice, my cousin who suffers mental health was on dla, I took her to the Assesment for PIP, was Advised to take notes , and i forgot my Book, Anyway a little Background, she is 33, was in childrens homes from being little abused mentally and physically all her problems started about age 10, she was seeing mental health team for around a year when younger, and wouldnt attend doctors which i know have massivly let her down, iv just got her back going which took me 2 days to get her to go there ,as she was some how living on her own in a flat which she set on fire twice burnt herself up to April and now living with me,the rent was behind aparently the so called man didnt want money she has poor reading writing, no understanding with money, apart from mental health she suffers bad anxiety wont go out by choice doesnt look when crossing the road, she has ear defenders, it goes on poor hygiene doesnt have a clue, she suffers siatica and cronic with her lower back anyway this is just a few things, she is on Lanzaprazole, Naproxen, Mirtazapine 30mg, inhaler and waiting for lung function test for Copd. Our Doctors cant make referals anymore to mental health its self referal and my cousin wont ring it she doesnt understand iv tried but they wont take my referal.everything the assesor asked i did most of the talking as my cousin doesnt cope very well, she wouldnt look at her, had slippers on because she wont wear shoes? Wont let me brush her hair , it goes on but the letter Arrived stating 0 points for nothing, Any advice would be great and sorry if doesnt make sense iv never helped anybody before but what was put in that letter isnt what happend the day i took her for the assesment, Do you think this is because of the lack of my cousin going to appoinents which is really hard , Also anybody think should do the Mandatory Reconsideration?Im doing all caring for her myself Thankyou Lou
