I am sorry to ask but I am seriously panicking as I don't know what to expect. I applied for PIP back in June. I received a letter the other day saying that I have to have an ATOS consultation. This is really making me panic as I don't know what to expect and have heard that ATOS are very hard core. I did request a home visit on my application, but they are sending me to a building near my city centre, which is not far and which I have already checked to see if they have a lift which they thankfully do.
I am just extremely stressed and worried I don't know what to expect and how much this person is going to understand my conditions. It says on the letter that I can ring them. I am too nervous to do this as I get a lot of brain fog and get my words jumbled. I was concerned when I found out that I had to go to them instead of a home visit. Is that standard procedure?
Totally stressed. Feel crappy enough without this hanging over me. My mum is going with me as I can't manage on my own. Feel like I want to give in really worried. I'm waiting to start Methotrexate -next month as my current meds not working enough. Just don't know what to think. I just can't carry on like this - I pray for just one day without feeling rubbish. Had enough!!
If anyone has any advice as would really appreciate any help feel like I'm going crazy.
Thanks, best wishes and love to u all
