Just had my pip assessment

Hi all, I've just had my assessment for PIP and took on board what a few had said on here for advice, the health professional that came out to me was lovely, she sat quite happily on my carpet taking her time with the questions and listening to what I had to say, most of the time I was talking to her through floods of tears through the depression I also have, but, thank god thats it over with, I will let you know the outcome of the decision DWP make, I am not sure how long it takes tho,

anyway, how is everyone today? beautiful weather is anyone doing anything special for the weekend?

How are you doing Alan? xxx

I'm glad that is over for you. The waiting is horrible. My decision came within two weeks and so I hope that you get yours soon. xxx

Hi stillstanding, thankyou for your reply, when you say you heard within 2 weeks was that good or bad news? the only part i found cheeky was some things she said were on my old paperwork when i put a claim in 2013, she said things like , when i used to watch my grandson play football on a sunday morning with the schools, do i still do that? well no that stopped well over a yr ago, but this is a fresh claim and they shouldn't be doing that, anyway hope you are well i can only but wait and see xx

yes that was very cheeky. I am sure that they do that to try to catch you out. Of course, the mobility aspect is supposed to help you continue to go to watch your grandson play football. I got lower personal award and enhanced mobility. This was what I wanted because my Blue Badge is my lifeline to life and now it will be renewed automatically. I hope that you get what you need.

Hi stillstanding, I'm glad you got what you wanted it can make all the difference with that extra help in getting an award like that, take care and nice chatting to you ๐Ÿ˜Š

That will be a relief off your mind having your assessment all sorted. I'm sure you'll hear some good news soon.

It's very foggy here in Scotland but also sunny & warm! A strange combination, I know! We don't usually have weather like this, so it's different!

Hope you can relax now your meeting is over & just enjoy the rest of the week. ๐Ÿ˜€

I wish you good luck, this is my 2nd time applying, last time I took them to a tribunal, still I got nowhere, so I'm hoping this time I get it, but good luck to you x

Hi Kazz,sorry to hear you ended up in tears but that might actually be in your favour.Hiding all your chairs is maybe a bit extreme though lol.I had to wait ages for my appointment but got the decision quite quickly.Give it two weeks and if not heard phone them up.You,ve done the really traumatic bit now so just cross your fingers and relax.Best of luck,regards D. ๐Ÿ’


Hope all goes well mine took 2weeks but a friend of mine only took a week so good luck x
