Hi, pip lied about my claim and I am at a loss of what to do
Recently after being on pip enhanced for the past year I had to go for an assessment. Since I was 14 years old I was diagnosed with severe PTSD anxiety bipolar as and hypermobility (hyper mobility was slightly younger) and I received my decision today and the woman has lied beyond belief. I cannot leave my house withput my carer and have difficulty hearing things which I proved by asking her to repeat herself numerous times due to the lack of hearing, I can't tell emotions of other people's or mix with other people due to being a risk and what it does to me, I.e lack of confidence, being scared, anxiety, can't understand when I'm annoying or upsetting somebody. I need help cooking and bathing and can't walk more than 200 metres without my back problems flaring up, I can't answer the door or the phone due to anxiety and my mental health know that and with being so I'll but not engaging which is normal in my circumstances due to the sexual abuse I suffered as a child and my mother trying to suffocate me to death also as a child leading to large anger problems and trust issues. I did not go for this, but I had been hit by a car about a month before and was still on crutches and they said I did all the exercises necessary I was on bloody crutches!!! I do not have any family or any other means luckily my carer has stuck with me but now it will have am effect on the money received. They scored me 0 points on everything I can't even get dressed when I arrived my hair was unbrushed and I was half in pyjamas still I had to reschedule my appointment given I could not bring myself to get out the house first time I struggle with changes and have major severe mood changes throughout the day I need help with bathing as in being prompted as I won't care for myself and I have set the kitchen on fire before trying to make food. I could go on but I'm sure you get the picture, I don't know what to do and I am very scared if anyone has any advice please let meknow. I am going to appeal it but I know nothing about it and have seen how many false assessments there have been I can't believe my eyes. Illness runs in my family I am disgusted the one thing that I thought saved my troubles has been the ruin of my semi lived life. Thanks Jordan.
