Hello I am on limited capability for work ,currently waiting for my appeal date for PIP.I suffer from major trauma caused by abuse which includes domestic abuse and discrimination at work due to my nationality.Been told by my therapist I would be in and out of therapy for the rest of my life.The solicitor from CAB wrote in her letter which supports my case with the PIP appeal that they should decide if I am entitled to enhanced rate of daily living because of the way my severe chronic depression and anxiety affects me.Problem is DWP did not only have an assessor lie against me in the PIP assessment but they consider it is somehow fit to have a work coach to call me every single month as if I would ever go back to work.That puts an enormous amount of stress on me as soon I have to go to my annual work capability assessment and I wanna ask the assessor why am I still being called every month and my work coach told me it is up to the assessors to decide if calls will stop.Not just worried but disgusted by DWP really.
