PIP assessment & MR
Got MR sent in to dwp for pip, I only received 6 points. As well as myself discussing why I think I should have got more points two friends gave me letters, one for a personal point of view on how I struggle and 1 on a work perspective and how I struggle. So to them I’m truly thankful of good friends! Asked dr surgery for medical history they sent me my medication notes which Iv put in with advice on the fact my medical history will follow. But does anyone else feel that you are having to fight for things all the time it’s so exhausting contacted drs today to ask why Iv not got it yet and they said they have to wait for dr to authorise! Then I get a message from CSA advising me that there is no payment but when I rang they wouldn’t tell me anything so now left worried about being nearly £300 short every month, I just sometimes feel others get things so easy at times and I have constant battles and I’m sick of it, just wonder what will be next ???
