I had my pip assessment on Friday 29th March 2019.I have eupd and have been suffering psycosis for almost a year.I felt completely intimidated and judged by my assessor even though I was hallucinating on and off through out the process.I said I could press a button on a microwave but as I had self harmed to stop the voices 8 weeks prior I wasn't allowed knives in my home ..I walked out feeling so upset and negative like he just didn't listen but ticked boxes.this was a re assessment as I have been on pip for 5 yrs almost.I phoned pip to give my gp name today and was told they don't usually contact your doctor anyway???? I'm in pieces !has anyone else been to a pip with psycosis symptoms and eupd ?? How did you get on.?thanks

Hi riabrown, sorry your going thru this. I’ve just had my letter thru and it’s spiralled me into a massive depression. I’ve been told tho that pip isn’t as bad as esa
