  • Hi :)

    I don't know what your tribunal is for but I won my PIP tribunal two days ago. I was certain I had lost but I got my award.

    lovelyredhead is right- I wore a suit but I had to wear my scruffy old Ugg boots as my feet were so painful and I left off my headscarf so they could see the extent of my hair loss.

    I'm told what helps is to do a good written submission, the judge praised mine and said it was well written and beautifully typed (although I have the Word app on my iPhone and I was able to dictate it and then attached to an email which I explained) he also said that I had covered a lot of what needed to be said so they didn't need to ask many questions.

    I'm sure welfare rights will give you the help you need but I'm more than happy to show you my submission or tell you anything else you need to know if you want to give me a shout.

    Best of luck xx

  • Aww, sorry you've been feeling so bad. You have been missed!

    Good luck for the 7th, hope all goes well. I'll be at a funeral that day but I'll keep my fingers crossed xx

  • Thanks every one .... I'm having a flair up I think coz all I am doing is sleeping and not much of an appetite just now. I'm more crabbier than usual and have no patience in the slightest ..... And can't shift a stiff sore neck ...... Just one of those weeks and not at the right time .... But thank you everyone . And give me ages days of being awake and i will be back to myself and answering as many posts as I can to be helpful ... Big hugs xx

  • Good luck I know and feel what you are going throughx

  • Good luck because I think everyone who has to go through these tribunals need it. I had mine on June 19 2015 and there had been three members in the panel the judge, doctor and someone who was supposed to know about SLE Lupus and Fibroymyalgia which I have both and the woman in the panel who was supposed to know about the illnesses I had she was so arrogant but the Doctor seemed to be sympathetic however I have not received mobility which is what I had when it was the DLA I had the high rate because I have a bad knee know wear and tear and it is very painful to walk but they said I will be able to manage and only gave me standard rate for Daily Living Component. These people are so harsh, I just hope karma does not bite them in their backside and their family or they do not get the two medical disabilities and other medical illnesses I suffer from and have to live with for the rest of my life. Anyway I truly wish you all the very best and just be yourself and let them know this is what you have to go through on a daily basis and you need the support don't give up even though it is easily said then done but that is what these people want you to do so hang on in there stay strong take care :)

  • Well I have Sjögren's syndrome and fibromyalgia and the doctor on my panel said oh yes I am well are of SS and I asked so you knoe bout this symptom and this one and he didn't and I still got refused .. And the lady in the panel said I see you have your hair dyed surely if you're able to go out to the hairdressers you will be able to work . I said actually the hairdresser comes to me and I am in agony getting it done that's why you see my roots coz instead of getting it done every 6 weeks I get mine done every 6 months maybe .... Depends on how bad j am ... I was raging xx

  • Hi thats what I mean the woman on my panel meeting was a right bitch she said how did you get dressed so I said with great difficulties because my knee and all of my body is in pain. I did not have any make-up on only my glasses which I only usually wear for watching tv, reading and my computer. She even said what would you have someone to do for you if you could get the help so I said my shopping because that can be a struggle and she just looked at me and I said to her well what would you do if you was in my situation because I have no one to care for me so obviously I have to do it myself. Probably that is why they did not give me mobility rate and only the standard rate for Daily Living such as cooking which does not make sense because I am still going to have to use my legs and arms to cook and stand up so they might has well have given me it but they are just evil people who like to integrate people who are more vulnerable than them and who have long-term Ilnesses because I believe they are jealous and dont want us to get any help from the government. If they had their way I think they would line us all up and shoot us all that is what I think of these ignorate people they just have no people skill and do not care what happens to us that is why I am telling you to try your best to see what you can get out of them because they have the money to waste so it should be on us don't you think anyway I will have my fingers crossed for you on August 7 2015 good luck and try not to think about it until the day. They are not worth stressing out over and I learned that the hard way believe me not anymore these people are not going to control my life by

    getting me more stressed until I become ill no way that is not happening take care Lillian :)

  • Yeah please do not give up even though it is easily said then done I felt like giving up many times but I said you no what no I am entitled to this benefit and I have evidence to proof my medical conditions so to hell with you lot I am going to get something for all this pain and suffering for life and you should do the same good luck and take care of yourself. xx :)
