I have just received my PIP
assessment letter and I feel things have been disregarded.
I am wondering if I should write a letter to ask them to look at the decision again, but I am worried it will affect the decision. I have been awarded the standard rate in both mobility and care.
The part I am really upset about is the fact that she has said I didn't look to have low mood or anxiety and I coped well , when I actually sat and cried in the interview, I needed someone with me as I was extremely anxious. I thought mental health issues were starting to be understood, yet I have been penalised because I looked "ok"
Other aspects of my anxiety condition was not taken into account either, like help with bills, dealing with letters, social anxiety, I explained that I struggled with all this yet I was not awarded any points because she decided that I could.
It has really upset me that someone can sit in judgement and totally disregard what you're telling them.
So can anyone tell me if it's worth having them look again, do they ever change their decision, or would I be risking losing it all together?
