Assessment lies

hi I've just received my assessment decision on my journal, I scored 0!  I'm so angry at the lies that have been told, they say I stood up from a chair with no arm rests twice lies, I always pick a seat with arm rests and my son helped me stand up these times, she said I walked unaided again lies as I help my sons arm. I also wasn't anxious or agitated, I was very and only spoke the couple of times my son asked if I was ok but that means I can cope socially, I also don't suffer from depression because I help my children with their homework!
Where do they find these people!
i have phoned and they will send me a statement of the reasons and a full copy of the report, also mandatory reconsideration had been sent but don't know how that will help as it's only a brief few words of why I don't agree with the decision
