Hi. I used to receive DLA (both components), then PIP took over and they only awarded me the daily living. However this has reached review and they scored me zero points. I did the mandatory reconsideration and was again awarded zero points. They said my diagnosis;s do not have symptoms despite me showing evidence . I have CPTSD. uncontrolled dissociation, anxiety, chronic migraines, Coeliac disease and Ibs. My therapy with a psychologist ended after years seeing the same therapist as he wanted me to do EMDR , the therapist who did this however refused to start the sessions as she had witnessed me dissociate a few times and her team agreed it would be too dangerous to try EMDR whilst was not controlled. Since then 2 years have passed and I have been pretty much out of the mental health teams support as the only offer they could give me was to add me to a local coffee group despite me explaining my symptoms made that impossible for me. Anyway, the citizens advice helped me with the tribunal appeal form but I am now worrying myself sick thinking about the actual panel hearing. Is there someone I can ask to sup[port me through this and attend it with me or do i need to already have a CPN nurse ?
