My tribunal experience
Hi am Christine am 48. Am new on here so i hope i have done this correctly. I was on DLA but decided to apply for pip as was diagnosed with cancer. Non hodgkin lymphoma stage 4 low grade though its in my groin my abdomen the armpit and my bone marrow. On what they call watchful waiting. I also have fibro cfs and degenerative spine in neck and back also arthritis and other conditions that effect every day of my life. Had my assessment and received standard daily. Put in the MR but wasnt excepted. Then went to 1st tier tribunal and won standard on both. I was happy with that but was disappointed to see the Judge wrote i stay in bed because am not ill but because i have no were to go. So i was granted to go to upper tribunal as i wanted that comment with the paperwork not to be available as i was disappointed by it. The upper tribunal was aware of this but they also took away my standard mobility. And awarded the standard daily till August this year. To say am heart broken to say the least. All i ever wanted was the lie removed. Am aware what upper tribunal says that it is the final word but can i do anything else can i take them to court.
