I attended my ESA assessment yesterday which was a real bad day for my Fibromyalgia and I was generally in pain and suffering from Fibro Fog   My daughter accompanied me and the doctor seemed genuinley concerned for my pain....   As we left he said to my daughter that he would recommend me as going into the support group but I dont believe him.......  I was denied PIP twice after the assessor seemed ok so do they lie to your face and write something different???  Or am I being paranoid?

    My husbands assessment practitioner seemed "really nice" but when we got the results letter back there was endless lies which is why we appealed

      Thats what I am afraid of    Happened with my PIP assessment.  Assessor was lovely and seemed to understand but then report sent was full of lies!!!  I wonder if they get paid more for lying?

      My daugher told the assessor that she handled all of our budgeting decisions for example and even showed evidence of bills being paid from her account   Assessment letter says I am perfectly capable of handling complex budgeting decisons?????  You just wonder why you bother attending if what you tell them is ignored

    I am going to be assessed for PIP at some point. I have a certificate saying I have been awarded DLA for life, but they are still assessing me for PIP.

    I think you need to have access to your medical notes as evidence of your disability. Although the doctor said he would recommend you joined a support group that does not mean he thinks you are disabled enough to be awarded PIP so he is not necessarily lying.

    Good luck with allthis. Take care and keep in

      My problem is that I dont actually believe that he will put me in the support group even....  So distrustful of them after having two PIP appeals refused with blatant lies told in the assessment report....  Waiting for the brown envelope to tell me to go onto JSA if I am honest!    I dont know why we supply evidence if it is going to be ignored anyhow?

      I had my assessment for pip 2 week's ago waiting for the outcome. Reading some of these story's I don't think I will get it. Can't believe that they lie. I am so stressed about it.

      Not worth stressing about it Barbara  It will be what it will be and you can always appeal   Fightback4justice say Appeal Appeal Appeal!!!   Keep as much evidence as you possibly can, keep a journal of your daily pain and activities ( or lack of) and if possible ask your own GP for assistance.  Good luck but dont waste time worrying  I have learned to accept what they say and then just fight on  Good luck x

      I have to do all this as well.They will assess me for PIP at some point and I am having to get all my medical notes as evidence.

      Fortunately I have a very supportive GP.and my Chiropodist has also said he will support me. You simply have to gather all the support you can .

      I consider myself lucky that I not a worrier but I understand all this can be very stressful.

      Try to look on the bright side.

      Keep in touch
