pip tribunal nightmare
Hi we just had a pip tribunal yesterday for a benefit first applied for 18 month ago.My self and my husband went along to support our 22 year old daughter who has aspergers and it was a nightmare. The legal person said they would go gentle and not to worry but omg the Dr on the panel was very abrupt bordering on bullying i would say and she also brought up our daughters sexual health in front of us her parents the dss person and 9 people in total in the room it was so embarressing and remember this was for aspergers! When we came home we all cried and my daughter has vowed never to leave the house again.I have been coaxing her to go out with me shopping and such to try and build her confidence up and this has set her back years!We feel like the doctor has over steped the mark and my daughter is in bits and feels violated it was so degrading is this normal? I hope someone answers because we feel so alone.We are still waiting on the decision letter but we don't hold out much hope of being awarded anything it was so awful.thanks in advance for any replys.
