In need of some advice.
I had an assessment around 6 months ago after applying for PIP, I received 0 points for everything. I have Crohns disease and primary biliary cholangitis. I am 29 years old, I have 4 children and I am really struggling. I was gutted when I got the letter telling me I wasn't entitled to anything, I have buried my head in the sand and not done anything about it although I know I should have appealed the decision.The assessors whole demeanor made me feel one inch tall and the thought of having to go through that again was enough to put me off appealing. If I were to apply for PIP again does anyone have some advice for me for a better outcome? Thanks very much x
