I am currently awaiting my PIP decision. I went for my assessment on the 26th of July and, my report was sent back on the 27th of July.
?The anxiety of waiting is really getting to me. I have lived with chronic anxiety since 2010 and I never asked for help so this is all new too me . The assessment was awful and demoralizing. I felt like i was being trick questioned from the start comments was as such;
?"Oh you have a provisional driving licence are doing your lessons ?"
?" Do you use online banking, do you play games on your phone, do you use the Internet"
?" You mite feel better in a couple of weeks"
?" How did you meet your partner"
?" I think you need CBT"
?" Are you claiming ESA" upon me replying know her face dropped.
?The comments did not even fit into parts of the assessment, I was crying my eyes out as I had to go alone without my partner as he had to work because without him working the bills would not be paid. There was no compassion it was 'Oh I am sorry, (carried on typing). I felt like I was letting a stranger into the world that I live, and I just felt like an object and not a person. It is difficult to replay it all.
?I just think its important to share my feelings of the process for others.
?I would be greatly if anybody would share there experiences, and how long there decision did take. I don't think I will be successful as I felt I was primary discriminated against, they really do not deal with mental health as well as they should.
?Also can I ask, when you ring the PIP inquiry line can you ask to be told the points that has been recommend upon your report.
