    Hi, I am awaiting tribunal date, I applied for PIP in December 17 and have rang tribunal centre to ask how long the wait is in my area & it works out at Dec/Jan 2019 for my date.

    Hi @livrose86, waiting times can vary in different areas: it may be a good idea to ring up your local service using the number listed on your previous letters, to see if they can give you an update!

    Thankyou - I hope things work out for you too , it's awful after having DLA & tax credits because I can't work full time to go to nothing. Now my work has dried up too, plus the fact that it wreaks havoc with my mental health as well as all the physical things wrong with me. It's got that bad I am seeing psychotherapist.

    Yeah, it is bad! Not good at all. Lack of support is unfriendly too. So much for people expressing they care etc? Anyway, take care.

    Hi @starchild oh no. I am sorry to hear your situation! I can only hope its all good results. Its very stressful and hard. I struggle too and each day is unpredictable really, its hard to know how to feel supported and feel its not easy for anyone really. Mental or Physical or both. Best of luck!

    Hi @livrose86 and @starchild
    No need to apologise for the rant I know completely how you both feel and yes let's hope for positive outcomes for you both. I know how frazzled and tetchy this makes us feel and absolutely not needed, I still cannot believe that the government are making the vulnerable people in society suffer like this.
