Hi just wanted to ask advice. I had a Pip tribunal yesterday as I suffer with Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and chronic headaches. I still work but have reduced my hours as I find it incredibly hard to stay in work full time. I feel I was grilled more than in the assessment and was told I looked fashionable by the doctor on the panel?? Also the disability lady on the panel commented I was able to communicate well and this is one of the descriptors in the assessment. I didn’t realise if you suffer with a disability or long term health condition this makes you mute? I am awaiting a desicion in writing but feel like I will not be successful. I would just like to know if anybody else had a similar experience?
