PIP

trudyanntrudyann Posts: 1Member Listener
I got my pip back today and was turned down. I have fibromyalgia and BAM (bile acid malabsortion) I suffer so bad with chronic diahrea because of the BAM which causes lots of other symptoms and with the fibromyalgia some days I can' get of the sofa. Every night I hardly sleep with such pain I also have arthritis in my knees and hips and unable to work and all I was awarded was 4 points. I feel so upset about it. I feel as if they don' believe me. I used to work in a special needs school as a TA which I had to give up 4 years ago because of my health. At the age if 50 I feel 100.

    Get your report and ask for a MR.
    dont concentrate on trying to make out that the assessor was lying.
    go into more detail with examples about why you can’t do a certain thing.
    download the form from DWP. It’s quite easy.
    remember you have to be affected the majority of the time, safely and in an acceptable amount of time and manner.
    Dont be down hearted, you don’t have to accept this result yet.
    keep fighting for what you think is right for you personally
