Hi, my name is traceytracey!
Hi all, I wonder if anybody has has a similar thing happen and any advice would be much appreciated I have recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis which also affects my lungs. I was told to apply for pip which I did. They awarded me the lower amount for daily living and nothing for mobility. I appealed this and they have sent me a letter saying they are now not awarding me anything and that they have over paid me!! I have never claimed anything in my life so am very confused. From the letter he has said that I swim 5 times a week, when in fact I stated at the f2f assessment that I would like to swim 5 times a week as it helps my joints, there are other things I disagree with too numerous to go into, I will appeal but feel very confused and alone right now . Sorry for rant i,m sure you all have your own problems to deal with.
