Hi, my name is robertson_jane1!

I've just found this site,and looking back at some of the old conversation. I have my pip tribunal today had to cancel one due having a bad flare up of Fibromyalgia. In a right state my hubby is coming with me  not looking forward to this at all😲

    Hi @robertson_jane1 - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I wish you well for your tribunal, & it's great your husband is going with you. Please try not too worry; it's just 3 people who will ask you how your disability affects your daily life & mobility. Your diagnosis won't be in question, more about the difficulties you face with these activities. You could explain by describing the problems you faced the last couple of times you attempted each activity that's problematic.
    If you don't get a decision today it doesn't mean anything & you should get the result within a few days. Please let us know how you get on. Now just breathe! :)

    Had my tribunal and completely broke down, couldn't cope with all the doctors questions. Realised how much my hubby and daughters do for me. Couldn't wait to hear the result as I was that bad, my husband went back to tell them. So I wait but not holding out any hope.

    Hi @robertson_jane1 - I'm very sorry you found it so difficult. It is upsetting when you realise how things impact on your life & how much help you need help from your family. I'm sure the Dr at your tribunal will have seen others similarly distressed by how their disability affects them. Please do try not to worry; they will make a decision based on all the evidence, & you should hear fairly quickly. You don't always get a decision on the day.
    Thank you for your update, & kindly let us know about your tribunal result.

    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope. I'm sorry to hear it was so difficult to today. Understandably Tribunals and assessments are always extremely stressful.

    Usually they write to you with a decision letter very quickly and you should receive that in the next day or two. Do let us know the outcome. Good luck.
