No thank you for your support.. ☺️

Well done, I recently had a PIP home visit even though I had not asked for one. My son was with me and he didn't feel it went well for me, (still awaiting a decision). The "Healthcare professional" asked loads of questions even though I had sent a large file with Drs and specialists letters and reports. She even got up and went into the kitchen to check my medications without being asked to. She was very abrasive. On DLA I was awarded it for an indefinite period but that no longer applies with PIP. I'm not trying to worry you, please don't, just be aware and be careful how you answer questions.

Hi Funckybiker will take aboard your comments and be aware. Thank you.

Hope goes well. I had home visit the lady was really helpful and kind. Just make sure you let them know all the medication you are on I made a list and what I took them for. With my breathing and having people asking me questions I did get a bit flustered but she was helpful but she forgot to write down that I was on oxygen and have to wear a mask in bed for my 02 levels. Gave it a few days and explained what had been forgotten they rung hospital to confirm and we knew a week later if we had pip make sure you have all paperwork from the hospital as proof take your time answering the questions they can be crafty but mine was nice she noticed my breathing not good because I was getting worried. Try and have relative their or close friend it does help to calm you.
