I'm appealing my PIP and have already been to tribunal once. It was adjourned to get more info. The problem I have is, one of the panel I feel, had it in for me. That one person really had a go at me and picked on me about things that had nothing to do with my PIP claim or appeal. I really don't think I could face another 'trial' like that again. I have since been informed that the DWP is involved. I have been told recently that my appeal, which at the start I was informed was simple, is now going to go the other way, if I dont drop the case. No one is saying why though. I have now got my date for the new appeal but I'm now a nervous mess. I've been told to have it in my absence so I asked for this. Only now to be told that I shouldn't have done that and I will definitely have my points reduced. Or worse. Its made me really ill.
