    I would get your GP  to send a letter to the DWP to explain what a profound effect them stopping your benefits  is having on your health. If you have a sick  note for 6 months off work this should be enough to be reinstated. You could send in a copy of this to them with a covering letter from the GP. Also see if your MP could help. Any medical evidence should help. Good luck🍀

    First you should have a read through your PIP form if you kept a copy, to remind yourself of what you wrote. You should take someone with you if at all possible. The will be watching you from the minute they call you into the room. Be honest is the best advice anyone can give you. Tell them the bad times and the good too, if there's any. There's also plenty of info regarding PIP assessments available on the internet, just google it. I've had 2 and to be honest i didn't find either of them as bad as i was expecting. Good luck.

    Hi I'm assuming you have had your assessment, I hope it went OK, did you take someone with you just for back up.

    The worst part is over because no matter what you do now it want make any difference, so try to chill and wait it out.
