Hi I applied for pip March 2019 got turned down the form was filled in by my friend who didn’t put any details in the original form, I got a telephone assessment the person asked me about my depression and on percentage off how much I get good days I said 60 percent good days I was very anxious during the call they said I appeared not anxious. Anyway I got confused and should have said 60 bad days not that my depression goes away . Am in the middle of a tribunal and I don’t know if I can say to them that I meant to say 60 percent bad days ? Also on the original form for pip my friend ticked no to preparing a simple meal I did know what promoting meant at the time and she didn’t read any off the things relating to preparing a simple meal as I do need prompting with this 60 percent off the time I don’t know if I can say that either I feel I have messed it all up as I didn’t get help to fill in the form properly. I just don’t know what to say now and I don’t want to be made out that am lying is anyone been through the same or someone could give me some info on what to do xx
