hello, i could really do with some advice as the cab along with others havent been as helpful as id have hoped, a few months back my daughter reported a change in circumstances in regards to her mental health conditions long story short the medication she was on when she initially claimed ended up having adverse reactions making her even worse so medications were changed and we were advised to report the changes assuming we would be entitled to more help, originally she was awarded standard care dla for 10 years. she suffers with borderline personality disorder, agoraphobia with panic disorder and manic depression she is unable to leave the house without myself as she does not understand the context of what people are saying making her sadly a threat to herself and others, she struggles daily with trying to control her thoughts and moods, a very long history of self harm and suicide attempts and she dosent eat so without me preparing meals she would not eat she require my supervision 24/7. on the 14th of december she recieved a letter saying she was no longer entitled to pip and the money has been stopped she scored 4 on the whole assesment, unfortunatly she found the letter before i did and ended up in hospital later on that night from an overdose she left a letter telling me that without the help of pip she couldnt survive so had no option. i really would like advice on if i should try to get a reconsideration for her, it is asking the impossible for her to leave her bedroom so finding work is out of the question. are reconsiderations succesful in many cases? we currently have no financial help and really need help in regards to what we do now.
many thanks, Tracy
