Withdrawn PIP

Having help to write this but felt strongly enough to say that I have suddenly gone from enhanced PIP to zero points. I have anterograde organic amnestic syndrome as a result of an RTA so cannot remember having been to a PIP  meeting let alone what happened when I got there. The meeting was allegedly at 8am on a Sunday morning and although I was given a lift to the offices I had no one to talk on my behalf which is vital as I do not process information very well.  I live alone and I am now in a position where I am unable to cover my bills. Having lost PIP, plus now having to find council tax,and losing part of my housing benefit, I am absolutely desperate and seem to spend all day crying. Losing PIP means I have lost any independence I had, and I have no idea what is going to happen to me. I cannot use the phone because I forget what is being said so I still have no idea whether or not the Mandatory Review was ever received by DWP as no acknowledgement has been received. Everything is so confusing. I cannot deal with noise or multi-voice conversations and have a host of other difficulties. I just don't understand how I have gone from enhanced rate of PIP to zero points when in fact my difficulties (both physically and mentally) are even worse now than when I first received it.

    you gone to zero points because dwp want to do it get some one to help you fight your case from the CAB or health officer at your local council get someone to go with you to exsplain everything, because dwp will stop your money asap and you will have a fight to get it back .
