I'm Going Through so much pain and cannot believe my PIP was disallowed after a mandatory reconsideration, This is a painful joke to me as I've had to go though so much, All my records don't seem to have reached my doctors practice and God sees the pain at night when I Lay Flat it affects my sleep and the whole process of waiting for these decisions is dawnting, I will appeal because I fit the criteria and need the extra help to ease my life along with all the other things I've done, it all doesn't seem Fair and I've never claimed PIP before in my life, I'm expecting to Win this appeal.as I've got an impaired lumbar spine and suffered a horrific injury with my weight and losing 4 pints of blood after being stabbed and hit with a metal bar 20 times around my head  I'm left a completely different person and have to live with the constant pain of every day life. That's reality

    Likewise. I too have a damaged spine which affects my walking Also PTSD and a damaged frontal lobe after being shot twice and a metal baseball bat split my skull at the back.

    Those are just two of the many disabling problems I have.

    I received 0 points three times in a row over the past 5 years.

    I could never understand what the assessors saw that I can't?.

    They Seem To see what's on the outside, but stay True to yourself and God  no amount of money can take away pain and they know it but they also know that it helps and makes it easier for us , Like. I said stay true and what we go through made us who we are . I do music therapy and. Once I'm making my millions they would see I wouldn't need it then  sad really when no one pays me yet for music  Hopefully It all changes
