Help with PIP
I have just received the assessors report for PIP although the assessor recorded that I need supervision in the bath as I have severe obstructive sleep apnea and that I nearly drowned causing me to choke, my partner explained that I fall asleep in the bath and that's why I am supervised. last night my partner's sister went in the kitchen to make some toast and a few minutes later my partner asked if I could hear anything and being hard of hearing I said only the ceiling fan which is noisy aparently she has excellent hearing and she heard a slight sound of the smoke alarm going off which I didn't hear at all. The assessor scored me 0 points. Also the Assessor scored me 0 points when I need supervision for cooking a meal as I have loss of balance and sleep apnea. 0 points were also given over medication supervision when infact they recorded that I attempted suicide by taking an overdose yet my partner told the assessor that she has been told by the GP that I am not to take my medication without supervison and only she is allowed to administer it. I suffer from anxiety and depression and I have high blood pressure, severe obstructive sleep apnea, hard of hearing and psylogical distress. I find it hard going out to unfamiliar places and my partner always comes with me. I don't have family or friends in liverpool so I am isolated at home most of the time except hospital and GP appointments and weekly shopping which my partner is with me at all times. I also have anger outbursts from time to time.
