PIP review

just wanted to give some good news. Saw the PIP assessor about a fortnight ago for a review ,she was lovely and actually suffers from fibro herself though said she wasn't as bad as myself and didn't have the other conditions i do.

i  was honest at the review and was gobsmacked when i got the brown envelope which continued my mobility level but increased the care component to enhanced as well

That's excellent. I always believe that if you tell the truth it's got the best outcome, in many things. If you tell porkies in these situations people see right through you.

Having an assessor who understands your problems must have made it easier to talk to her. It's such a shame they are not all so understanding. 

Must be a weight off your shoulders now it's over, I'm pleased you had a good outcome 🐸
