Well, after 8 months semi-patient waiting, I have finally got a date for my assessment with Atos. I have taken the self assessment and my results show a need for the higher rate in both areas. Now what do I do to prove this to my assessor? I have used what happens when my condition is at its worse, an every day state, although not all day. I have read some real horror stories, and also a couple of good ones. Does anyone who has successfully been awarded PIP have any advice for me? I am relieved this time has come but terrified of not being able to make ATOS really take me seriously. I'm also frightened of being in too much pain to do things as requested, or of wetting myself in front of them (i can't tell when it's going to happen and it DOES happen three or for times a day despite pads etc). Help! X
