Feeling so unhappy
I have already posted about this. I was awarded 0points after having been on enhanced rate. My pip was stopped 12th June 2018, as I expected the delay tactics aka mandatory reconsideration was disallowed meaning my actual appeal was only logged on the 27th of July 2018. I have been putting off phoning the tribunal court phone number, but called last week to be told the average waiting time is 40 weeks. On top of that it takes a number of weeks after that to actually receive any back pay should the decision be reversed. By the time this has occurred I'm now stressing that even if I do win the case, I'll be having to reapply for pip not long after that to be put through the whole process again. I know there are so many people going through the same ordeal as I am but I'm just feeling so low and feel like there's no light at the end of the tunnel. I'm struggling to deal with my health issues after losing £150 a week has made it even more of a daily struggle.
