paranoia schizophrenia and PIP - what does this mean?
Hi my wife has paranoia schizophrenia she took an olanzipine overdose in may last year and gets highly paranoid and distressed if she doesnt get enough sleep or is under stress she was awarded pip last year at the time she was so ill it had just been Christmas her eldest child doesn't live with her because of her illness and she was so overwhelmed to see him she started to to get ill we had every health care involved and still pip wanted her to have a face to face assessment this was January last year she went and the assessor agreed she wasn't fit for assessment. We now have a review as its been a year again my wife just hasn't got the capacity to handle stress so is starting to slip again I informed DWP that my wife is not fit for assessment again they said we do it to everyone! I received a text from pip saying we have received the written report of your pip assessment . we will write to you once we've made a decision on your pip. As a guide you will hear from us in 3 weeks. What does this mean I really hope I don't have to take her to a face to face she really can't cope with much. Any information is appreciated. Thank you.
