Received my pip report today.
My assessor's report arrived today after asking for a copy about a week ago, I'm still waiting for the official decision. From what I read of my report it's 90 percent accurate, and everything I told her has been mentioned. I scored 14 points on daily living and 12 for moving about descriptors, I'm transferring from a lifetime DLA award. The only things that I found odd were only scoring 4 points for preparing a meal and 0 points for planning and following a journey. I have dwarfism so all the kitchen work services are at eye level to start with I'm 3ft 10 inches tall standing up, and obviously much less when I'm in my wheelchair. She asked me I could peel a potato, which the answer is yes, but what would I do with it once it's peeled?? As for planning and following a journey yes I do drive a car, but explained about anxiety once I left the safety of the vehicle. I'm very self-conscious, I'd never drive to a place where I wasn't meeting someone at the other end. My anxiety would also take over and stop me from following a route in my wheelchair, I clearly wouldn't be able to push myself any distance over 10m anyway! The assessor mentioned I needed someone to get my wheelchair in and out of the car, as I'm not physically able to do this on my own, but failed to acknowledge my anxiety in the report. There seems to be no common sense, just because I haven't got any medical history for anxiety doesn't mean it's not there!
