An update on my pip process came through the letterbox this morning in a large brown envelope.
yes the long awaited report.
apparently on the assessors report I have 6 points for daily living and 12 for mobility.
bearing in mind I have uncontrolled epilepsy and a back injury.
im not calling the nurse a liar as she seems quite a nice person but her award points contradict the reason.
apparently I have points because I can’t wash the lower part of my body and yet I can dress the lower part so no points. The list goes on....
i have contacted our local disability solutions centre and left a message, they will contact me back soon.
however I shall sit down and highlight points that I disagree with.
could I telephone the DWP decision team to point out why I disagree with the report or wait until final decision.
At least I have something so can afford to keep fighting on

    Hi lillybelle

    Yes you have a small window to ring and discuss your concerns with a DM before the decision is made

    So do I just telephone the pip helpline of the DWP and ask to speak to a decision maker?

    I shall be sitting down on Monday with a cuppa plus biscuit tin and going through that report with a fine tooth comb.
    atm I’ve gone on a little break for the weekend with hubby to clear my head and de- stress
    but I would like to hear of anybody who is/ was in my situation and did they manage to get anywhere with the decision

    Washing would be due to the water and the added risk with that. 
    So with seizures its not considered safe to shower/ bath be around water on your own.
    I would score you points for that even if you could/ couldn't. 



    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.
