    The victory rate for people appealing for disability benefit has reached its highest ever. 69%.

    I know it's hard (Don't) give in fight it.

    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories.

    I personally often felt the same "is it worth it" then thought to myself of course it is and went through the whole process of appeal MR and onto the tribunal, the tribunal came as a bit of a  shock as when going through the appeal and MR stages you are faced with what my wife called faceless abominable no men who's remit is to simply ignore anything you say, the tribunal board however was made up of 3 people who were prepared to listen, not only to how my disability affected my life but to the untruths and misleading statements from both ATOS and the DWP I won at my tribunal so the answer is yes it is worth it, it did take a lot of hard work prior to my hearing, but I went through every report and statement from atos and dwp word for word in order to answer each point, stick at it, the satisfaction in knowing you beat these faceless nobodies is worth it alone

    Many times I nearly withdrew my PIP appeal. Good thing I didn't as I went from standard to enhanced both components.

    @EllieStar1989 Don't worry about the picture. As Ive said above and (don't give up) and let them win, because that's what they want? I would suggest you get as much functional information reports from Dr's specialist etc if you haven't already, if you feel you should be entitled (fight it) Also try and find yourself a welfare rights adviser or CAB in your area that can have a face to face with to help you sort this all with you.

    As others have stated here they felt like giving in but they diden't. Touch wood I've not suffered yet? But if I do, I will fight for my right, just like you should as me and Sam from Scope said in our messages above 69% win the appeal and you stand a very good chance at winning by taking it to appeal also.

    Good luck.

    I can only read some of it. I have the greatest respect for anybody sharing things on here. 

    Did they give you points in relation to the medication aspect? For mine someone ordering, collecting and then supervising me take the medication scored me a zero. 
    Just curious.

  • MatildaMatilda Member Posts: 2,616 Disability Gamechanger
    I got 1 point for needing an aid to unscrew medication containers - rubber gripper.

    I'd have thought you would have scored points for needing someone to supervise you to take meds.
  • EllieStar1989EllieStar1989 Member Posts: 45 Connected
    I was awarded 2 points for medication before when I was awarded pip but when reassessed again I got 0 because I can pick up my medication and take it out it the packet I don't deny that my issue is if I am left with my medication I will purposely over dose on it 
  • whistleswhistles Member Posts: 1,590 Disability Gamechanger
    So that suggests a risk to me? And you need supervision. 

    My assessor decided I didn't have memory problems so I was fine.
    I don't always know what day of the week we are on. But maybe I have just learnt to cope or its not important to them.

    Yes that's how I am 
    They said I coped fine 

    Me at assessment looking at floor unable to look alook at them or even look up crying shaking picking at self harm cuts on arms 
    Them what medication you on 
    Mind blank omg think what are you on come on you taking 
    Me serteraline and umm saying to them and I am on umm while literally trying to think 

    But they say I recalled the medication so I must be fine 

    I go into a shop I get panic attacks bad anxiety head feels a mess can't think straight feel exhausted can't count change add things know what change I will get but because I count 7 back from 100 and even though can't give the answer straight away I am like 100 99 but because I can do that I am fine

    Not sure but I think they call that brain fog. It's a known issue with my condition, but they don't look at that it or how you feel, just the % you are effected by it.
    I was fine because I wasnt on meds for it, didn't see any mental specialists and knew where I went to school. 
    But in assessment I struggled with two of the memory tests.
