I have my telephone assessment next week, and I'm a nervous wreck
Hi everyone, I have a telephone assessment next week and I am making myself ill worrying about it as last assessment the woman lied about a lot of things luckily I had the woman from The Council On Disability as a witness to it all, I got zero points to which the lady done a MR for me and got low rate care and mobility! I think it is awful the way we are made to feel or is it just me that thinks like that? I feel they are constantly trying to catch you out and you need to think carefully about what you say or you’re made out to be a liar, I suffer from terrible anxiety and depression amongst other chronic pain conditions and I wish I could go back to paid employment but I can’t because of my health-this whole process with pip from filling in the form, assessments etc and the waiting game is terrifying sometimes and if you weren’t suffering from anxiety before the claim I’m sure you will by the end of it. Sorry for the rant.
