Good morning, I have just been awarde pip at the lowest. I had a telephone assessment and to be honest I went to pieces, I have suffered with mental health problems for many years and take SERTRALINE, I received the decision makers report and it bears no resemblance to what was stated in the telephone assessment, She wriote that I was calm, not anxious and not hostile,but I was all of those things, Why do these people tell lies to stop us getting the help we need, I have worked for the past 12 yrs but have had to stop because I have other medical problems, ie- osteoarthritis in both legs, a burst disc in the spine and also I have 4 trapped nerves in the spine which causes severe leg spasms. None of this was mentioned in the decision. Just makes my blood boil.
