    Hi @jane1973
    I have a dog who thinks my lap belongs to him!! 

    Have you considered appealing the PIP decision? When did it get stopped?

    Ive had it for a couple of years since being dismissed from my job and the diagnosis of fibromyalgia  my review was in april and because nothing has changed and if anything it has got slightly worse i recieved the upsetting news on monday just gone and was stunned at such a change i was only awarded 4 points for not being able to walk over 200 metres and everything else was discarded also the letter said i shouldnt be able to drive a car and i was not malnourished ive never recieved anything like it

    That must be a huge shock to you :(

    You can appeal the decision and we have some great videos about how to do that. take a look and do ask any questions as we have so many members who have been through this.

    If you use the search function at the top of the page, there are so many threads of people talking about their appeals.

    Good luck!!
