Hi everyone, I've just had the most terrifying day going to a tribunal over PIP. Do DWP realise the stress they put on people withdrawing benefits without warning. In February 2017 they stopped my PIP and then dropped my ESA allowances needless to say I won a ESA tribunal in 2016 in the November and before Christmas this past year ESA have already called me back for another assessment. I honestly feel sick and tired. I suffer with severe anxiety, depression, PTSD and have had to have 8 surgeries on my foot and leg due to a car accident in 2012 I broke every bone in my foot and had 2 surgeries on it last year alone and yesterday found out I may have Complex Regional Pain syndrome and have been referred to a pain specialist. I honestly feel like these people put a label on people like me and I feel like they are taking the mick. My welfare rights worker said they will send me the answer by post as they were running behind with cases but it couldn't of gone any better in the court. Fingers crossed xxxx and thanks for listening
