If you have read my previous posts you will know that my DLA has ended and when I applied for PIP, I was awarded standard rate for both until 2026. I was determined to appeal because it had meant the loss of my motability car, my last bit of independence. I now have the result of the mandatory reconsideration they upheld the initial decision. It's like reading a letter that accuses you of being a cheat, a liar and a fraud. I had a bad angina attack and have spent three days in bed. So I'm posting today to say that despite all my brave words in previous posts, I can't continue with my appeal, I just haven't got the strength or energy to try to convince faceless civil servants that I really am unwell and in pain. Many of you sent me your good wishes for my battle and I'm sorry that I'm not up to the fight. I did the best that I could. Thanks for your support.
