Morning all.... 
I hope to het some help advice.... 
I jave multiple health problems... Fibromyalgia since early 20's... Ms. Arthritis. Bowel inncontence problems... And finding it hard to do any daily activities now. And alone.
Now recently findings in a letter that i am sycofreinc!!? Never in my 40 years been told or talks from gp this and frightened as having pip review early this year 6 months ago and still no answer reply.
And worried... As the assessor stopped my review on phone half way through talking. 
Assessor said im goi g to stop this interview now as she said i should here in few weeks.!!!
As she i can here you are struggling on pbome.

But worried as ive not had my review still.?
And called pip some weeks ago for update. And pip said that capita may do my review by paper format.!!?? As my pip ends January /may next year. 
And trying find help support is like a tennis match.....

    HI,
    There are huge backlogs for PIP at the moment and some people are waiting about 10 months. If there is enough of information to do a paper based assessment they will but this is rare. In the meantime all you can do is wait. Your current PIP award doesn't end until next year so that's a few months away yet. I know it's difficult but try to relax because there's nothing more you can do.

    Hi @Fibroangel - & welcome to the community. I'm sorry about the problems you've had, &, as we all know, it's hard not to worry, but try we must. As Poppy has explained, PIP claims & reviews are taking such a long time now, unfortunately.
    Do you think it might be an idea to discuss with your GP about this schizophrenia diagnosis you've recently found, so they can explain?
    I hope you find this both a friendly & supportive group, so do use the forum to chat any time. :)
