Hi, my name is donatello!

Hi, I had a dreadful pip review last week which took over 2 and a half hours and there were alot of questions which seemed irrelevant to Pip eg. When I last worked etc. The lady sounded pleasant but I felt that she was deliberately trying to confused me despite me telling her I'd has only 3 hours sleep and a panic attack already that day.
I was wondering if anyone else has had a bad experience and outcome with a lady called Taonga? 
Thank you

    Hi @donatello, welcome to our online community :) I'm sorry to hear you had a really bad PIP assessment. It can be a very stressful experience, there's a lot of questions they ask to try and complete their report. You got through it though, there's just the decision to wait for now and then if needs be you have the appeals process to help you

    How are you feeling today?
