    Hi valerienesbitt and welcome

    Who ever told you that is an idiot. There is far to much scarmongering going on.

    PIP is about you and how your functionallity is affected. Your GP and medical condition are important but only to support what you say your difficulties are.

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    The CAB guide to filling in PIP forms explains a lot.  It's important that you share exactly how you impairment affects you so they can understand.

    Hi Sam
    I looked at that before filling in the forms and ticked no change on more or less all the boxes even tho things were worse.  It seems that form they send is a red herring anyway (whatever that is ?)

    I spoke to a decision maker yesterday about my MR and was told they had made and wont change their decision purely on the information they had received from the Atos medical assessment.

    LOL, I was unable to go to this so called medical assessment and guess what no points awarded.,,,, It's a miracle I am cured ; ))

    When I asked how can Atos do a medical assessment without me even turning up (logical question in my view)  once they stopped laughing was basically told because they can and are allowed to.

    Me thinks its all just a game to most of them and as long as they can collect a nice bonus in their pay packet why would they give a toss about any of us?
