Hi to poppy123456
How lovely to have you say hi and is nice to meet you.
Thank you very much for your kind post and advice.
Thanks for the useful link you have shared here. I will need to have CAP advice me for this.
Thank you for your reply. I am a new learner and I will keep on learning from other.
Great Scope!!! Wishing you doing well.
Hello @poppy123456. Pleased to meet you.
Thanks again for your good advice. Today I look at the link you shared, I have learned a lot more and I understand about how much points I should get and I am now do feel a little bit more confident that I should do appeal. As I am a polio sufferer from a child... I have paralysed one leg and have one weaker hand and arm. I have received higher rate for mobility long time ago until PIP have change to cut it down to standard rate in 2017. I have accepted and then in may 2018 my health has gone down so badly I have so much more problem with walking, so I did asking PIP to looking at my case again.... PIP doesn't help me more but did CUT and stopped my mobility.
I did ask PIP for reconsidering my case.PIP replied that's the decision will not change and said I do have one month to appeal to tribunal.
The last time in 2017 PIP assessor give me 12 points for mobility, my paralysed leg only getting worst with age as I am now at a pensioner age. How come 1 year later PIP = my new assessor gave me only 4 point for moving around to stopped payment for mobility? This is heavy blow to my depression, the cut came as a shock ... I feel hurt and just curling up with more pain.
I believed my assessor does sympathy with me and does seeing me as a genuine claim for disabled but her job is here to STOP payment. I am so shock and upset but I couldn't blaming her... She is a young lady she's have a perfect hand and a beautiful strong leg...She have a good job and happy she's would never understanding how much someone like me have to suffer and she would not know how desperate we disabled peoples do suffer and we needs to hang on to our dear life to live with dignify and need to living independent as long as possible then to need a carer.
I am a genuine severe disabled person. I am in need of help for mobility and do have enough points for my claim. But it is seems to be all depending on luck of who's doing assessment !!! I read many peoples lost appeals... So I am afraid to go to tribunal appeal.... I wouldn't want to put my self in shame to standing on a tribunal to asking to be a burden... I will be so embarrass at tribunal court to fight for payment that's wasn't my hard earned money. Thinking like this I am just given up...curling up with my own pain.
If the Government policy is to CUT the benefit for disabled people then I am accepting.... I do know some other disabled peoples out there are needed help and support like me but they do afraid to make claim......Some peoples so old and so ill to cope with these hurdle and their just curling up and suffer in silent.
I wish I don't have any disabled and I wish I can manage my own life and able to help other peoples in needs...I know it is not in my power... I only just wish...
My heart thought it is not only speak for myself how I feel but for many other disabled people out there... they must be feeling hopelessly lost.
@kafoleg to Waylay
Hi Waylay!!!! Nice to meet you Waylay.
Thank you for your comment! I am glad to found your feeling exactly like me!!!
Welcome to be my friend on this Boat of Pain for being a disabled person. But don't worry we are disabled but we are still human being, we still having some dignity and heart felt for the other pain and suffering... When there is no kindness and caring left in this world then this life's would be so ugly to living in... Maybe to help ours pain; what we can do is to share and care for each other to help us and the other to be kind and be awareness of those disabled in needs of help...Maybe we are so weak to do anything for the other but keep writing and post our feeling may be would help to speaking out for many other who's just in pain but curling up and die in silent of shame. Writing in here like this I might not doing any good to helping myself but I am feeling strongly I want speaking out to help the other who is like me but suffering in silent.
Maybe many others like you or like me would joins us in to speaking up about how we are feel and we do need some dignity and help from each other that's we are not alone.
God blessing us all.
