Wife awarded PIP, but had bad experience with assessment. Terrified of having another one.
Hi guys only just joined never been on a forum before, but I'll give it ago , my wife has just received her pip review form and it's destroying her, she has severe anxiety, she's been through counselling , and just had 20weeks cbt , that's not helped , she has other physical issues but her anxiety consumes her. When she initially applied for pip I went with her, it was a day we had to build up to for weeks, in the room she cried till she was shaking, she was scared to death , she broke down to the point the the lady interviewing her handed her tissues and helped me to calm her down. She had an anxiety attack right there infront of her , to the point she felt the need to assist me in calming my wife. My wife was awarded pip but on the letters with the award, the lady had written NO VISIBLE SIGNS OF ANXIETY. we never really argued or questioned it because she was awarded the pip. Whilst her physical ailments may be enough to win the award , she is now terrified of another face to face. Whilst I can help her with her physical needs , I don't know how to help her with this ! I was there that day and read the award, the lady basically lied and the results are enormous. Any help or ideas would be much appreciated
