Hiya, I was diagnosed with epilepsy with grand mal seizures in April last year, Ive been rejected for PIP so far and have my tribunal on the 27th May, according to the atos report I should of scored 12 points on daily life and 8 on mobility checking the scores online. Anyway dwp rejected me saying I'm able to bath myself and cook myself without any difficulties. This is true, I can physically cook and bath myself but I must have supervision to do so as my seizures are still uncontrolled and unpredictable! On a good week I can usually just have 3 fits! But on a bad week can have 7 or more.. I managed to get a review off my epilepsy specialist stating what is safe for me to do and not do. However I sent it in just after I had the decision for MR. Will it still be taken into consideration in the tribunal? What is tribunal like? What sort of questions do they ask? Will my representative be able to talk too? Any advice would be appreciated.. Thankyou
