PIP Assessment - have you gone through this experience too?
I have been called in for an assessment for PIP today in Wakefield ,I was seen by who I think was a nurse,before the interview started I offered her all my illnesses(that are numerous and which are quite unsual) which I had typed and keep to take to hospital appointments also that there is lots of medications I cannot take which can make my illnesses worse,she did not want to see any of these but more or less insisted I answer her questions as she typed,such as how one particular illness affects day-to-day living,I kept on telling her with each illness,that they all affected me the same way ,can't breath when I walk and in terrible pain in body, legs .When she asked me to stand and lift my legs or bend or move my legs apart a certain distance (which I laughed as I have osteoporosis grade 4 also diagnosed with cancer 2012 )this was at the end of the interview, "I asked if she was a doctor" !!.I am 67yrs old and have been in receipt of Disability High Rate and the lower rate carers allowance since 2003.Is there anyone out there who has gone through this experience as myself.
