Hello dear friends,
I’ve at last had word from DWP about my PIP application and they are going to do a phone assessment on 4th August. Not only did they state they are going to phone when they’ve been told I have what amounts to a phone phobia, but they stated they will phone the mobile when hubby put on the form that our preferred phone number was our home number. 🤦♀️ Why ask if they aren’t going to take any notice of it?
Anyway hubby phoned them yesterday and they have noted that they’ve to phone the landline number and have taken on board that with a phone phobia I am going to find an hour on the phone in a stressful situation almost impossible to cope with, so I might well need a break. He’s going to be with me but of course won’t be allowed to answer for me.
I’m stressing over it already and wondered if anybody has any experience of such a call and any advice on how to cope with it. I’d be very grateful for any advice or reassurance. 🤗😘
