Hi everybody, sorry I haven't posted for months but I haven't been in the 'right mind frame' . As it says in the name of the posting,I have been turned down ( twice ) for PIP. The woman came to my house to see me in person to assess me. Eventually I got the decision. Apparently I was so confident that I didn't even need anybody with me ( My son took time off work to be with me ! ) Also I couldn't do much in the kitchen,because of my balance NO it was because I have very little feeling in my right hand. There were various other discrepancies. But I won't bore you with them. Apart from to say I was 1 point off receiving the lowest payment. Which after waiting since Jan 2014 I would have been very happy with.
So I went to Citizens Advice , and we appealed the decision. Stating the discrepancies,and sending proof ie. Letters from my Neurologist,Professor and Gp.. But to no avail. !!
So as you can gather I'm not happy ! I've lost my Self Employed business as a Driving Instructor. My Driving School car is up for sale this week. Also my Gp has put me on antidepressant s again !
So I am going to a face to face Tribunal. When I get the date for it. What have I got to lose.?? I've lost my car and business.
Sorry for my rant. But I just can't believe that people can tell blatant lies and get away with it ! !
