I have been unable to work for the past 18 months after becoming depressed in 2010. I had lots of time off sick from my nursing job and was eventually dismissed. I applied for PIP but was turned down (scored 0), asked for reconsideration and sent a letter of detailed support from my mental health support worker and a family member. Still scored 0 because I had attended the appointment appropriately dressed and answered all the questions. Therefore I do not have any real problems with going out, engaging with others, communicating or self care. Yet I struggle daily with all these things and am frequently house bound and unable to do very much. Not sure if it is worth appealing though as if I turn up, will this go against me?
