change in circumstances

I put in for a change back in july 2019. rang them in October they said it was now with assessment, so rang them, they had no appointments. rang again December still none. rang today again said I should get appointment in next couple of weeks. they said I would have to travel as I have a car. but each place they offered is an hours drive away in good conditions. I live in cornwall so mainly small roads. I said surely there is something closer and they said no. I said but what about cost and she said you get reimberessed and I said but I have to find the money first before I get that back. just because I can drive doesn't mean I want to drive on them roads for that amount of time in pain. I got myself in a state as I only get working tax credit as I am self employed. the doctor says I would have a better life if I had a mobility scooter, but obviously cant get that plus my mum helps pay for my car and a scooter wouldn't fit in it. my mum is carer for my dad and is now helping me with housework and shopping,

got back on to pip they can do nothing now its gone to assessors. I ended up in tears. it seems this new company are even worse than atos
