    HI Stephen,

    Good luck with your Tribunal when ever it is. Are you taking someone with you? Maybe a family member or a friend? or do you have someone else to support you on the day?

    When you do go remember to explain with as much detail as possible about how your conditions affect you daily. The Tribunal are there to listen and to get a picture of how your conditions affect you every day. Fingers crossed that you will be awarded Enhanced in both parts of PIP. Unfortunately DLA has now ended and it has transfered to PIP.

    If there's anything else you want to know then please do ask and i'll do my best to advice you anyway i can. Good luck!

    Hi Stephen, welcome to this lovely fantastic site, I'm thinking that this is probably your first time using a web forum for help, support and advice, let me tell you that normally you would have a warm welcome without exception, maybe it's the sun causing the unkindness you have witnessed but it's a rare phenomenon I promise.

    So sadly you have joined the ranks of the unhappy who have lost contact their faith in the DWP, not everyone has a raw deal but that doesn't help you, have you been transferred onto PIP and if so is this the reason for you having to make an appeal to the tribunal.

    I do hope you come back and get the advice you need, I wouldn't really blame you if you felt you couldn't but as long as we can understand your question then that's all that matters

    Hi Stephen

    Please ignore, rude posts such as Sarah's we are all here to help each other, I can understand how you must be feeling.  Humiliating people is hitting below the belt.  I hope that you will continue to share your situation with the rest of us, it takes some courage to make your first post on boards.  It must be wonderful to be perfect.  I am not starting a war, here, but Sarah seems to be hell bent on doing this.

    Good luck and remember, it is what is in the package not the outer wrapping which counts.

    Best Wishes,
