    @bevt2017 Congratulations and well done!! You must be so relieved. I've still got a battle getting Atos to accept the awful assessment I had but I've accepted my award for now so at least that side of things is sorted. I'm just about to send my 1st complaint off to DWP but it's about ATOS so don't know if they'll do anything. Hope you can now relax and enjoy life as much as you are able. Best wishes for the future.X

    Hi @bevt2017,

    I'm sorry to hear about all the difficulties you've had with PIP in the past, but it's great news that we were able to help, and that you've finally got the result you were looking for!

    Congratulations!
    Liam

    Hi @wildlife  
    Thank you so much for everything. That's fantastic news about your P.i.P award. The complaints department have been brill with me. Especially when I told them my case manager lied about payment. When you send anything make sure it's recorded delivery, even if its free post, I could always track it then. ( I think you know that anyway). I will keep coming on scope. 
    Best wishes and I hope you get sorted soon. X

    @bevt2017 I am so pleased to log on here and read your news. Congratulations! You must feel so relieved now. when we got Hubby's ESA sorted out of course wew were delighted, but I felt a bit deflated in an odd way, after all that fighting it was like..." Now what?"  It is great to hear a positive outcome . @Wildlife, I hope your complaint gets addressed properly, and quickly.
    Woops, was that pig flying past my window? :-)

    Hi @Justice
    I know what you mean about "what do I do know". It's been going on for so long, I don't know what to do with myself. I just hope that other disabled people get the help they need.
    Thank you X
