Hi everyone, just a wee update after my PIp assessment, which was only last Thursday so I'm pretty shocked to get s letter so quickly today. Anyway the outcome is that I have been awarded standard rate on both the Daily Living and Mobility component , I am please at this but a wee bit unhappy at some of the Decision Makers Reasoning, I won't bore you all with everything but one of the things that I am unable to do is go out on my own, I have went from being a very outgoing person to being the least confidant person ever and I and my husband explained this to the lady who was assessing me, who was lovely . However the decision maker has written that I said I have difficulty planning and following journeys, and that this is inconsistent with the information provided at my consultation where I apparently clearly stated that I can cognitively plan and follow a journey although I prefer to have someone accompany me therefore they have decided I can plan and follow the route of a journey unaided for the majority of the time . Isn't it amazing how they can twist things to suit themselves , I scored 11 points therefore if they had awarded me points for that then they would have had to grant me the enhanced payment . I think I am just going to leave it as this though, I havnt got it in me to go through any more forms to fill in or assessments to go to, just thought I would let you all know as everyone has been so good on here with their advice and support so thank you all very much, hope everyone is having a good day, love and hugs xxxx
