Awarded And Still Confused

Hi all, it's taken me just over a year to get my Pip award. They declined my Mandatory Reconsideration, so I appealed to the Tribunal, who then stated that there was no Mandatory Reconsideration in the first place.

Last Friday, a very nice chap phoned from the DWP after giving me a 15 minute warning that he was going to phone. Shaking like a leaf before, during and after the call. Said there were contradictions in my appeal with what I originally wrote, so just told him how it is on a day to day basis etc etc, he then awarded me standard living and enhanced mobility. Well, I cried like a baby to him, whilst answering the have you been in prison/hospital and are bank details the same. Had email yesterday from Tribunal saying that DWP has gone in my favour. So it's just a waiting game now. All the years of me wanting to claim but didn't. Finally DWP listening to me. But I'm still confused over everything, Still, it's done, I won, won't believe it till money is in and award notice is received. Currently recouping after the news. 😊
