    I was assessed
    for pip sorry to be down. but the guy rushed me through with lots of that does  not count. I felt ignored and upset.
    I do suffer badly from depppresion the Drs that knew all about me where one went to Australia and the other retired. being depressed left me unable to think straight. and i was rushed with that does not count we dont need to know about that.   I did not fight the result. but feel its to late now. and seeing some of the results. scared that I may loose even more I lost around £130 a month

    You need to research what PIP is about you cannot get it by saying you are depressed it's how your disability affects you carrying out the descriptors in the PIP criteria
