Well I attended my PIP appeal today, was in such a state and when I walked in and saw the panel sat behind a big desk I nearly had a meltdown. Was asked questions by the doctor who focused on mobility and the disability expert who focused on the daily living. The female judge was lovely. My partner was given the chance to speak at the end. We were in there around 30 minutes. We were then asked if we would wait in the waiting room, this was around 15 minutes and then called back in. She advised me my appeal had been upheld and I was awarded standard daily living and enhanced mobility. I was absolutely gobsmacked! They were lovely to me at the end and wished me well and the doctor said to try CBT to help with low moods and that it was understandable I get low with my health problems.
I was on cloud 9 but have since realised the DWP can appeal the decision 😥 I didn't realise this so the pessimist in me has now been fretting about that!!! I was put on this planet to worry!
But despite that it's still lovely to know that they believed me and obviously took into account input from my GP and consultant which I don't feel my assessor did. Just need to keep my fingers crossed now that I do actually get it.
Hope you are all as well as you can be and love to all 😘 Xx
