Hi, I'm new. I was wondering if anyone has claimed for pip when suffering from anorexia? I was claiming dla and am now in the process of claiming pip. I attended a medical assessment on 23rd June and now I am awaiting my result.
I have a question re my medical...I was seen by a physio nurse and she went through the questions on the pip application form which I answered truthfully as she typed. When it came to the physical, however, she asked me if I would just like to decline as she felt I would not gain anything from the physical tests. I just said yes and the assessment was ended. What I would like to know is why would she ask me to decline the physical tests? Could it be that she felt they were not needed because she had enough info for her assessment. I do admit that my weight is extremely low and I am fragile so do you think she expected me to not complete them successfully anyway? It is so hard to predict because she was nice but then I have heard so many horror stories of assessors lying and therefore am I too trusting? I would appreciate your thought or similar experiences.
So has anyone successfully claimed pip for anorexia, and if so what were you awarded thank you.
