Ive had chronic asthma all my life with other medical issues as a result like diabetes, also had heart bypass 3 years ago, plus an eye condition - kerataconus as a result of bad excema in my 20s. Im in my mid 60s, on 4 inhalers and tablets, and it wont get any better as i was told i only have 50% lung capacity after investigation for a lung nodule which was suspected as being cancerous, but isnt.
Now ive had to apply for PIP after being on DLA for years, sent in all my medical letters & evidence and they still booked me for a face to face assessment, fortunately at home as my wife is stage 4 cancer sufferer, which complicates it all as she used to look after me!
Has anyone else gone through the change from DLA to PIP and how did it go? Obviously everyones situation is different but id be interested to hear of anyones experiences of PIP & Capita !!
