Well the dreaded PIP Assessment went ahead today. From the letter and original phone call from the DWP it has took no time at all, in fact it's like I've been fast tracked!
I've read numerous things, mostly bad, some less so, so I went in the a what the heck attitude - what will be will be. It will cause a huge change of circumstances should my claim for PIP from DLA is refused or go down to standard rate for both parts. I really have no idea how the face to face went, all I know is that it wasn't as bad as I thought, that said I;m not confident.
I have Scleroderma, oesophaphagal disfunction (PEG fed) Fybromyalgia, Cerical Spondy.. wotsit! Raynauds, Osteo shoulder and Arrithmia
The lady who assessed me wasn't too harsh and typed at break neck speed. I did a few excercises from my chair but she didn't push me.
My husband came with me and even he remarked it wasnt as bad as he though it would be.
I'm still not confindent
I cant change anythng and they explained that it's not them who make the final decision, they are just there to tick boxes
Definately not confident
I will let you know when the dreaded brown envelope drops through the letter box
I haven't done my best, passed a test or given my all. I just told them how it was so whether they choose to tick those boxes in my favour or not only time will tell
If you are having an assessment soon, don't worry just tell them about your bad days, that's all you can do
BTW - Still not confident
