i am currently trying to get a paper based assessment for my pip review i first got sent a appointment to attend a centre then after speaking to them another appointment for a home assessment but i am unable to do this i suffer from severe anxiety and depression the process is causing me conditions to deteriorate even further i am having suicidal thoughts daily as this process is becoming to much for me to cope with i am totally house bound and have been like this for years i explained my conditions in my pip forms and told them how hard i find it to interact with people the only person i see is my brother who who cares for me i didn't even see my family over last Christmas due to the way my condition affects me and i refuse to let them in my flat as my anxiety becomes overwhelming in front of people it has gotten so bad. i did use to see a woman form the mental health team a psychiatrist who use to come and visit me on home appointments but i had to stop these as it was causing me far to much stress building up to these appointments and was making my condition get the better of me the panic attacks where becoming to much i did not have a copy of the report the woman from the mental heath team done me as the original copy was sent with a old claim and that is the only medical evidence i have i have not spoke to doctors even over to phone for about a year as i find it so difficult to open up about my condition. i am 31 year old male and find i so hard to get the help i need. anyway i have got my brother to post a letter for me to the doctors to ask them to explain that a home assessment is going to be to much for me to cope with and to do a paper based assessment the dwp said i need to get my doctor to do this to get a paper based assessment i am so worried and distressed with the process and on the edge of giving up my home assessment is meant to be on Wednesday the 28th march at my home but i have told the independent assessment providers i cant do this. the letter to doctors to get them to write me a letter explaining i need a paper based decision has only been posted out today i was wondering if anyone is in a similar situation and for any advice on what to do?
