Worried and confused
Just wondering if anyone can help me. Four months ago i had to go to the dreaded pip assessment, the appointment came on Friday for me to be there 9am Monday. Out of the blue, i have really bad anxiety and i suffer from panic attacks so the next two days were hell. I couldn't rearrange or get a home assessment as there was no time, anyway my carer got us there. Long story short, a few weeks later i get a letter letting me know my pip has stopped. Zero points. I couldn't believe it. So now im waiting for the tribunal date, my carer also had their carers allowance stopped. The thing im confused about is that yesterday my carer told me that their carers allowance has been reinstated. Ive had nothing telling me about my pip being reinstated and im terrified if i ring them it'll be a mistake and I'll jinx myself or it'll mess my claim up. The last 4 months have been awful, i dont go out, I only eat when my carer makes me something, i hardly sleep worrying. Can somebody tell me if this means that my pip money has probably been reinstated and i just haven't been told yet.
