Pip text and decision

Hi just checking in everyone,a bit puzzled about that and text saying do not call them at all even though it seems they know my decision,but don't want to tell me if I rang up,I find it very strange,but fine with me contacting them if my circumstances change,I just keep remembering all the questions fired at me in quick succession,and me panicking,was this another small assessment,as I suffer from mental health problems. the rudeness of the guy and being pushy wasn't very nice,and I was slightly maybe not so nice back,i also think he lost patience with me,asking also for evidence,they have all this,why are you asking me all this,my mum helps with all this,I'm lucky to have her bless her,but she keeps all the pip forms and everything all together,when he rang and persistent with it about 5 times in a  minute,private number and then another local number,I rang it back and the line is just dead and nothing on it,getting real worried that with what stories you hear I've been on pip for about 7 years,but it seems they move the goalposts alot with the way their act,because he kept ringing I woke up and answered still half asleep and my mum not near bye, with these new questions I think I've failed,I was dozy at the time as well because I sleep alot due to medication,this is constantly on my mind now,feel sick,any advice anyone.

    Again, it's another of these standard texts. However, as a decision has been made, you can actually ring to find out what this is (0800 121 4433).

    Hello @london75, sorry this has worried you so much. PIP can be a really difficult thing to deal with sometimes and cause all sorts of stress. It's great that your mum is helpful, perhaps she could try ringing the number that chiarieds posted above and maybe they can clear things up for you. 

    It must be a really worrying time, but I hope things become clearer soon :) we are always here if you need to rant about things or have any questions.
