For anyone switching from DLA to PIP.
After deciding many times not to put myself through a PIP assessment, my hubby and friend talked me into going. The closer the date got I felt as though I was back in 1982 with my driving test looming. When the date arrived I was surprisingly relaxed and just told it like it is. If anything I was very positive and upbeat saying how certain tasks are difficult but because I have to I adapt. I told them that yes I feel pain every day but it's like white noise, it's always there that your mind naturally ignores it and only really registers when it's over and above a certain level.
I held little hope of being awarded and only scored 9/84 for Daily Living and 0/24 for Mobility. In actual fact my PIP award is two and a half times what I got with DLA.
Good luck anyone awaiting a decision.
