No Advocate and feeling scared
Hi all I am starting to get really worried now, as have my third assessment at my home with an IAS aka Atos person on the 8th August, have had all money stopped first time going from IB to ESA, reinstated 3 months later, then in February 2017 went from DLA high rate to PIP standard, appealed and lost March 2018, complaint gone in re assessor. New claim put in June 2018 and now they want to do it to me all over again, 14 hours on 3 occasions spent at the DDIC filling out form, very complex illnesses needs. Have spent the last two weeks trying to find an advocate, without any luck, my lady I had before doesn’t cover my area anymore, I have nobody to be here for me and I’m scared now, my mental and physical health are going down hill rapidly, help!
