Hubby has got his PIP assessment on  Tuesday 21st of this month. Its at 9.30 in the morning and my illness is at its worse in the mornings, M.E. Thing is im too waiting for own letter to come asking me to apply for PIP if i wish to do so.   How can i be seen struggling in with him only to be seen myself maybe in a few weeks time, I would be putting down that i feel at my worst in the mornings!  Ive been adviced by my daughter inlaw no way should i go with him and to let our son go in with him but he says no he will go in on his own, just wants to get it over and done with. I feel like im letting him down if i dont go.

    Hi Susan

    On a more positive note, you might like to check some useful advice in respect of you having ME and claiming PIP on the meassociation website.

    Sorry cannot post link.

    I wonder if the face to face covertly recorded for the dwp own use for training purposes.

    Also, why would the dwp object if we made our own recordings, given that we are all probably taking some form of medication which can make it hard to remember, as long as it is addmisable as evidence, or have they got something to hide.

      Precisley, if they are honest and fair what have they to hide? Its us the claiments that are being interigated  after all.
