    Appointee for my son went from DLA to pip had phone assessment scored him zero in everything did mr then got 23 points so enhanced care and 10 points mobility so standard I felt he should have enhanced mobility so decided to appeal but got paperwork through and they basically saying he should have scored zero in everything as apparently he has no problems at all they have not got a clue about how hard our daily struggles are so just can’t do with the hassle so think I am just going to withdraw now because I have been sat in tears all day why we we have to fight so much to get what entitled too 😔😔😔😔😔
