worried sick over the lies the dwp say
i have suffered depression and anxiety for many years, i had struggled through it til i was in abusive marriage which ended in 2010, i had been coping til one day in 2013 where i took a major panic attack and havent worked since and have been on esa and pip since 2016. i just had my pip assessment and the lies that have been reported are unbeliveable. Apparently because i made the assessment my condition is not as bad as i was trying to make out, i must eat more than 3 meals a day because i am over weight, then stated i denied i was overweight however i did not , infact i actually stated i have always been overweight which has never been an issue therefore i would not have any medical input, as they stated in there reply to the mandotary reconsideration, i stated i can read and write however i cannot concentrate on this kind of information, which they reply is not a condition for pip and my concentration cannot be that serious as i can drive. i also have osteo-arthritis and repeat epsiodes of sciatica, they stated i managed to crouch down to the floor in which they never asked me to do such thing. my knee was actually clicking and popping when i stood up which she heard as she commented it sounded painful. they also stated my medication was standard medication ( duloxitine, propananolol, amyitryipline, codine, paracetamol, ) i am currently at the process of awaiting on a tribunal hearing, however the dwp have opposed this and state i should not be allowed this as there report was fair. this has been on going since may 2018 and i am worried sick of the out come. any info or help would be apprieciated
