Hi lou_lou just talk to them as if its the worst day of your life, every little thing you suffer on those worst days. Dont let them change your view, stick to your guns, show emotion.

WOW.... that long.... disgraceful. Cannot imagine your stress and anguish.

Good stuff you fought back and got justice.... shameful that you were made to do this.

Sort out your bills etc and take a breather... you soooo deserve it....

Well done YOU!

I got my money back dated on appeal. You're very brave going to appeal , the stress is dreadful, if it hadn't been for my son nagging me I would have let it go. It's put me into the mother of all flare ups.

Thats what the DWP bank on, that people give up or dont fight, everyone should fight, as the assessor lied about me, thats why my pip got taken away. Its not fair how we are treated. We need to stand upto them, they are just bullies.
