Assessors report received. Thankyou everyone who has given info on the PIP process. It helped me 😊
Hi there, just an update on my PIP claim. I got my assessors report yesterday and it seems as if I have scored 15 for daily living and 20 for mobility and I honestly think reading advice here has helped me. I first applied in 2017 solely for mental health reasons and got no points. Since then I have gotten much worse but with Fibro myalgia thrown in also 😢 I've read so much advice here about sending in anecdotal evidence and that has really helped me, they actually didn't even request a doctors report this time and I didn't send any as I kept reading here that Dr's, CPNs, Phychiatrists don't see you doing the descriptors and tasks every day. I know I haven't had a decision yet but going by the report it seems as if the assessor has actually listened. I would highly recommend reading the advice here and tell your 'story' of how your condition affects you, not the condition/s itself. Thankyou anyone that has given advice either direct or indirect. Good luck and I hope yous are also heard. For me, anyway, its much more than financial.. It's about being recognised and listened to x
