I have to attend a face to face assessment for PIP this coming weekend and I don't think I can face being turned down for it again.
I lost my indefinite award of DLA back in 2016 but wasn't awarded PIP due to only getting 4 points out of 12.
I have multiple mental health conditions and I have been ill with them since the age of 16 and I am nearly 43.
I don't think PIP is designed for people with mental health problems where the symptoms connected to their illness can vary both over time and in their severity. My first assessment caused me great anxiety and I don't think I can go through it again for a second time especially as I have recently been for another benefits-related health assessment in the past month.
The worst thing is receiving a report back from the DWP written by someone who has never met you and has no clue how your illness affects you from day to day.
My anxiety at the moment is sky high due to worry and all I want to do is sleep.
