    Sorry to hear this, it is happening far to often. Is the report accurate or are there things that you could dispute. The only way to get an award is to show that you meet the criteria
    When you receive your decision letter you should ask for an MR, don't let them deny you the award you deserve
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Fight on - it's usually worth it in the end.  They want people to give up - don't let them get away with it.

    just been reading people's experiences on the PIP complaints website. Not enough people in the country are getting together to protest about this "nasty" government 's target to deny half a million  disabled people what is rightfully theirs! Don't know how they and some of the "assessors" sleep at night.

    I know how they sleep with a bonus of kerching under their eyelids
    It makes people depressed though making their disabilities worse

    I have been to welfare rights they have helped with evidence i have and put in a letter to have my claim to be looked at again . have had no news back yet letter has been in 5 weeks now .
    I have also been to see a my gp for depression and they got me a counsellor . it seems everyone that has there pip turned down ends up with depression but ive been told fight all the way. I am also aware that these blackouts i have are a none epileptic attack disorder part of epilepsy still dangerous but I must thank those i spoke to in past for there kind words
