    I just phoned pip n no decision has been made yet but it with DM already.He said this is why they dont like sending out copies of reports cause it causes distress n confusion.In my report he has ticked does not need help with dressing then underneath it says does not get dressed due to depression n spends weeks in sane clorhes n needs prompting so what he writtern does not go with what he ticked.Hopefully DM will have acess to much more info.

    The DM will usually go with the report but it has to be stressed NOT always, all you can do now is wait for the final decision and then go for an MR if its not what you expected.

    2024 Election won

    Perhaps when i filled out my claim form i shd have put no change cause nothing has changed i have just got worse but i wanted to explain things n it was v similsr to what i wrote last tine. I suffer with amxiety m panic m if i go out n start 2 panic i start shoutin n causeing a scence. I have slipped disc n walking is v hard m have to keep stoppin but cause i said i cld go shpppin but had to keep stoppin to rest my bck i scoted no points. I think it v unfair n pip is v hard to get for mental health issues.i scored no points for not needing any help on planning a journey cause it mite cause distress wich is not fair. I hope DM does not go with report n looks at all my evidence from last claim.

    I have no experience of a review. I am led to believe though that’s it not recommended to put “no change” so I think you have done the right thing explaining things.
