I recently added my renewal claim for PIP turned down . CAB told me to phone and tell them I wanted a review . I suffer from Fybromyalgia . Arthritis . Bipolar Disorder .Asmatha . Agoraphobia . During the home visit the " health care worker " spoke at length about herself . I know what her previous job was , her recent divorce . her kids names & where she lives . Not the type of information she should really share . Firstly she wasn't anything to do with health care before and only had brief training ( which she said , wasno adequate ) . My worry is this . 25 minutes of telling me all this and 5 minutes of me answering questions about my illnesses . Is this right ? Maybe she thought she was putting me at ease ( it didn't , I was really uncomfortable hearing about her divorce )....I eventually got a call back asking why I disagreed with the outcome . This man laughed at me several times until I finally asked " why are you laughing at me , I'm I distressed by your obvious disregard for my situation AND illnesses . So what is the point , do I give up ?
