    I am having a great deal of trouble with the DWP.  It is a long and complicated story to cut to the chase they are accusing me of claiming DLA while I was working they are saying I wouldn't have been able to do my job with the disabilities I have.  The managers at my work wanted to get rid of me as I had so much time off sick so they told the DWP anonymously a tip off they said! It has been extremely stressful and as a result I am under a phychiatrist.  Apparently it will take 6 months for the disicion  maker to make a disicion! I have been forced to quit my job because of my health and last week the DWP sent me a letter withdrawing my Pip payment.  It just can't get any worse. Sorry but you did ask me to tell you a bit about me.  I am an occupational therapist by trade a job I though I would love however the health service is in dire strates so I'm glad to be out of it.

    I am so sorry for what is happening @Hookey101 :(

    In regards to DWP, I am unsure how to advise however there are many knowledgeable members in the community who will be able to help you and will be in contact with you soon.

    I think Occupational Therapists deserve more recognition because I think they are amazing!
