PIP Face to Face Review?
My letter stated that I’ve been awarded an extension because my conditions are not likely to improve.
I have the following conditions:
Encephalitis, Epilepsy, Type 1 Diabetes, Underactive Thyroid, Pernicious Anaemia and Anosmia.
Since the last review I’ve been diagnosised with T-Cell mutation which is thought to be causing my problems. It’s very rare and I’m told only around 35 known cases wordwide. Me, my mum and my sister have it. Obviously the existing conditions won’t get better as the damage has been done.
I have been watching the news recently and PIP has been under fire for its handling of...pretty much the whole PIP process.
In light of the coming shakeup I am wondering if you think I’ll be asked to a face to face interview? I know it’s far off yet, but it’s still stressful thinking about it.
My conditions effect my balance, extreme fatigue, seizures, memory problems and anxiety. I have hospital appointments at least twice a month and just spent 12 days in hospital because of a relapse of encephalitis.
Sorry for the length of this post.
