Veteran old PIP claim cancelled starting New

Hello, so I was claiming PIP and I updated them that I was on more medication, this then triggered anassessment.... 

- I have become reclusive
- I have severe anxiety

I finally got a home visit, but on that day my partner who is my career had to go to her dad's as he had, had a fall. I heard the knock, I was stood there, I froze and hid. 

This then voided my claim. 

I am ex service, I was in Afghanistan and blown back after my mate triggered an ied. I was 19 and I had just seen his leg.... I'm sure you know...

I have started a tribunal for this old claim, whilst starting a new claim. I have been told you all can give me good advice moving forward. 

Thanks

    Hello, so I was claiming PIP and I updated them that I was on more medication for my PTSD, this then triggered an assessment.... 

    - I have become more reclusive
    - I have severe anxiety/memory problems
    - triggers/flashbacks
    - sciatica severely worsened

    I finally got a home visit, but on that day my partner who is my career had to go to her dad's as he had, had a fall. I heard the knock, I was stood there, I froze and broke down. 

    This then voided my claim. As they reconsidered and my reasons for not going through with the home visit were not satisfactory for them! I appealed the decision and the mandatory reconsideration team upheld the decision.
