Hi fibro friends Just had my call back from PIP re assessment long story short I wont be reconsidered on my assessment

I would like some advice I have been told if my condition has worsened which it has... I have to put in a new claim ......Is it really worth it. Im worried about my job having lots of time on sick .......financially I am struggling ......Have to admit im feeling pretty low at the minute...tea and sympathy is what i feel I need right now........xx

Hi Mazzer, sorry to hear your PIP application has been unsuccessful. I would certainly reapply if your health has worsened, at the end of the day all it will cost is time. I would suggest you contact your local citizens advice centre to help you complete the form this time. Good luck, Linda

Hi I failed the DLA even on appeal which I felt would sort me out. So I applied on the first day for PIP - after months I eventually got a positive decision - I can only speak from my own experience, but I would re-apply & keep on doing so until you get the support you need. All the best, Eddie

Hi Mazzer

Hope the tea and biscuits helped:)

Like the others here I would definitely NOT give up.

I know the form filling is a bit of a bind, especially when a lot feels like you are repeating yourself.

I have an appeal in for the support group. I feel I have to get that as when DLA changes to PIP for me I will not get it. I am sure if I stay in WRAG they will say I don't have enough points.

I have middle rate care and there doesn't seem to be a category for that with PIP.

So, keep appealing, they expect you to lose interest and make their job easier. Don't give them that satisfaction.

Fingers crossed for you:)

Xx

One thing I have learned over the years is that worry/stress only makes the pain worse, try to take some time to relax, you will cope much better for it. Gentle hugs.
