Pip assessment report
Hi I had my pip assessment last week what I thought was just horrible. And they say they are here to help. They say that there job is to make sure the dwp understands your illness.. Wow 2 days after the assessment I had a text from dwp saying they got my report. So I called them straight away for a copy. Come the next day and I just can't believe it. I ain't had my decision yet but I know for sure it will be zero points. I suffer with mental health. Depression and extreme anxiety. Trying to explain to the assment officer. About good days and bad days was pointless I could not get a word in she would only listen to what she wanted to and that shows on the report as everything I said she has put the opposite. In a 25 min interview with a nurse who probably got no experience with mental health. have done a report making out there is not one thing wrong with me. I have been sectioned 4 times have had meny sucide attempts self harmed and never hardly leave my home. Had to move in with my mother as I was struggling to get to appointments and control my medication. But yet she have said basically there's nothing wrong with me. I had to have a ambulance the day after my report as I had sucidel thoughts due to the stress of it. But yet she said low risk of self harm and sucide. I can control my budgets but I told her I'm in debt because I would be to ill to open bills and deal with them. Told her I cant control meds as sometimes I'm to ill to collect them. But she said I can told her I can't go on public transport. But she says I can got out any place on my own the list goes on. Why on earth would this woman lie. Did she just not like my face. This report has made me so ill. Surely people like this can not be doing this type of job.
