Hi everyone, i hope you're all doing ok (as ok as you can be). i'll say sorry now as this may get lengthy and shouty, but i had my pip descision yesterday which basically scored me 0 points not 1 point was given, as you can imagine i was pretty shocked to say the least as in the form itself they use a dosette box as an example of an aid (which i use as i forget meds) but i still didn't get 1 point...NOT 1!!!!... i didn't read anymore of the letter as i was too annoyed. Any how this evening i have read the rest and the reasons why they came to their descision... WELL!!! what can i say, what a load of utter rubbish,lies and down right bull crap.. according to my assessor i have full range of movement,can bath myself fully without any aid (i use a chair in the shower and can't use the bath at all). i can take meds without help ect.. and get this i'm not on any medication for my anxiety which is basically an out right lie.(which of course i can prove).. this is just a few of the statements the assessor has made faulsely.. i am so mad right now i have brought on symptoms but i have to get this out somewhere or i think my head might explode.. HOW DO THESE PEOPLE SLEEP AT NIGHT!!!... how are they allowed to lie like this.. i mean the 2 biggest points the assessor lied about i can prove otherwise in writing so i don't understand why they would even try it.. even though some of what was said in their report i can't prove it's my word against theirs but proving 2 major points are lies should at least give reasonable doubt over the rest of it (i hope).. i am ringing in the morning to ask for a mandatory reconsideration and ask them to send me all the paperwork that was used to make their descision and to ask them to not take anymore action on my claim till i have had chance to go through everthing and i will put my request in writing to include all corrections and proof's that the assessor has grossly misreprisented my condition and ability.

 sorry again for my ranting.. comments welcome.

    I get it completely. U are not alone. I had to take a decision to a tribunal. I learnt that there are 2 tiers of tribunals .

    The lower and higher tier.

    Don't be a shy to call MP's. That really gets things moving. Sometimes even just talking to MS secretaries is enough to light a fire beneath these people's backsides.

    With the stress of it all I know what it's like.

    In my rock bottom moments of my life I try to believe in this universe and have Faith that in will be ok whatever happens.

    Good luck. With a gentle hug x

      Aw thanks Gill.

      Us lot have to stick together coz so many people don't get us.

      The truth always speaks volume. We can look people dead in the eye as we are speaking the honest truth.

      Our illness is invisible in a lot of ways.

      I've lost quite a lot of people because they just don't get it. But we know.

      There's a lot of misunderstanding about our illness. It is an illness inside the brains communication systems so we can get anything. .....and we do.

      What people need to grasp is that today I maybe able to walk a little further but I couldn't repeat that daily.

      We all know we have many days where we can't do much at all.

      I believe there are people in the Fibro UK that can specifically help with the paperwork and procedures we have to face.

      Ull be just fine. X

    Get yourself a welfare rights worker to help with an appeal and ask any dr and specialists you have seen to send reports on your condition.

    I so sorry that this has happened to you.

    I had the same done to me but mine was ESA. Phone them Wright to them and get every detail you have of proof of all your illnesses. I cried when I got my letter and was giving up. Then like you I read the letter again and again and I got MAD don't give up the fight. This is what they want and then they have won. Go and win as I know you will. I won mine. Try and get your local MP involved. Good luck and a merry cams to you x

    I'm mad as hell for you . . what a disgrace.  Even WHEN you prove that the assessor lied, I bet there will be no sanctions or repercussions for ths dishonest behaviour.

    What a shameful way to make a living...

    I have my PIP application in the pipeline and am already very anxious about it.  I intend to request a taped recording of my assessment as I did with my ESA, that way I hope that what I actually say and what the assessor rights in the report match up.  

    I wish you all the best with your reconsideration - Fight for what is your right  - you sound like a strong person.

    Good luck

      hi ela, definitely record it, i wish i had.. but at least i can prove she lied with paper evidence so i'm quite confidant but they are slippery suckers and twist everything you say play down your condition, i guess if you go in expecting them to stab you in the back you will be more guarded.

      My assessor even stated that i was very chatty. (erm yeah i was anxious) it was nervous chatter. but she played it like i can't have anxiety if i'm happy to talk.. but anyway good luck with yours.

      let me know how you get on..

      have a lovely xmas.
