Hi I'm northernsoul89! I had my assessment, and I don't feel it went well. Anyone have feedback?
Hello everyone I applied for pip on mental health grounds as I am a long term sufferer of depression. My support worker filled out my form and said I need prompting to eat and help with medication and budgeting. I was unaware of the points system and unfortunately did not prepare. I told them I was drinking and abusing drugs , recent relapse. This was not on form. I feel they asked me trick questions like is my flat upstairs and can I make ready meals. I feel Ibombed the question on food and that will cost me. I was not asked many questions and nothing about toilet and bathing etc I feel I failed to argue my case and will not get the award as they asked very little. I'm in supported living and I am worried sick i wont get awarded pip because I can walk and use a microwave . Will they just ignore my addiction and depression as it's a point based system ? I also spoke well on the phone so they could use that against me too. Any feedback is appreciated
