Have you had any experience with PIP home assesment?

Hi, I'm having a PIP home assessment in 2 days , I didn't request a home one just got told I'm having one. Sent my forms back start of July have got worse since then and am finally getting assessed mid December. First assessment was last year in a centre but have deteriorated a lot. lm currently just getting standard mobility rate no independence benefit.  I am so worried about it and that I won't be able to sit for 2 hours due to pain and just don't know what to expect really and that I won't be able to answer the question properly and if they get you to do tasks around the home I'm going to try and do them then pay for it later etc. Are they generally kind ? Does anyone have experience of having a PIP home assessment to let me know what I can expect ? Many thanks in advance .
