Lies at PIP assessment - what now?
i was on esa,had an assessment in january and had my money stopped in february. appealed decision and went to tribunal, lost appeal. was told to apply for pip. i have depression and anxiety. had an assessment on 7th november and have now been told am not getting pip. i dont go out and am very jumpy at slightest thing, i dont go into town as i dont like crowds of people and get very anxious. lady at assessment said in report that i was not nervous at assessment. i had a fidget cube with me and my mother in law and was a bag of nerves, how can they get away with saying these lies. i am teriffied that i am going to be forced to go back to work as i dont feel confident enough.
