Hi my daughter like many others it seems went for a assesment and recieved 0 points apart from her hearing aid which they could not,although in tears and shaking said showed no signs of anxiety,her PIP was stopped in December went for a mandortary consideration and finaly had a reply turning it down in April now going through appeal which it seems is going to take ages,she is getting deeper in debt trying to struggle on ESA alone but what has only just come to light is that all her questions were answered on the basis she has a car ( not mobility one ) her car is off the road and she has had to stay with a friend as she is housebound without it due to mental health,Asthma and COPD so questions such as making familiar journeys etc she is not able to do without her car but not sure if it is to late to get this across,i worry as she has felt suicidal a few times because of the situation she is in and have no ideah how much longer she has to wait for her appeal,seems like could be months yet can anyone give me any advice on this please.
