Hi Lauren...i looked at the forms I got and was like "holy crap" you need a degree to fill them things out,but one day my internet went off and I got them out and did it lol it took me quite a while but I think I was very clever with my answers and explained them well ...i don't know how long the waiting time is to hear back but that does seem quite long...i found out within a month but it might work differently in other areas...i would chase it up x[

Morning guys, Irang up pip to check the progress of my claim and iIam not eentitled to it :( apparently Iddon't qualify and they have posted me the reasons why. :(

So sorry you didn't qualify for PIP Lauren. Do you have anyone who can help you with an appeal? Are you in touch with CMHT, or maybe a family member? Sorry I can't offer much advice. :hug: xxxxxx

Hi Lauren...if you need any help with appealing,feel free to message me and I will see what I can do to help...I'm quite good at letters and form filling (I think I am) hope you're ok...dont let them put you off,that's what they want for people to be turned down and not appeal x

when I applied for pip the nurse who came out to see me also lied about me
she had said I stood up when I never did. my partner was with me so he knew the truth
I sent a reconsideration letter and I got awarded higher rate mobility
but I get that for cfs and fibro.
my mental health wasent real bad when I applied so I didn't mention any mental health issues.

Hi Unique...thats shocking,I wonder how they can sleep at night when they are in a position of trust,yet lie through their teeth (probably for commission I dare bet) I can't get over how much I've heard about their lies ...its a shame people couldn't record it in some way,so its on record...sounds daft but it would catch the bugg**s out! X

Hi stormy so sorry 4 the Late reply don't seem to be getting notifications :( I told my Dr she said 'I was very calm' he laughed and said he'd never seen me calm :unsure: its all so wrong, I know someone who receives higher rate for both & also earns £350 per week as a roofer :unsure: I just think there making all the wrong people 'fight' for it, personally I find every day a battle could do without these jokers adding to it lol Xx

I have bpd, cyclothmia, anxiety, depression and addictions. I also self harm and have tried suicide a number of times. The majority of times I don't function. I don't eat or drink some days ( I'm size 8) have a poor sleep pattern, lie in bed on my worse days, have debts, forget to take my meds and don't go out the house due to anxiety and basically self neglect. I also had to stop driving. I had supporting evidence from four different progessional groups related to my mental health problems and a supportive GP who has also seem me when if been very distressed and on one occasion had to call an ambulance. I have also been done for common assalt due to my anger issues. I got 0 TOTAL points on my assessment. The woman did not even know what cyclothmia and bpd was. She also contradicted alot of what I said and made things up. According to her I was basically fully functioning. Amazing! Even my lodger who works with problem families was discusted and will be helping me with the assessment for my appeal. Id have to be half dead, under 3 stone and spent the last week curled up in bed incontinent with pressure sores to even score 1 point in total.
It's sad that people do abuse the system while genuine people get refused even with evidence from professional teams that they are in crisis and struggling to cope with their mental health and activities of daily living. The assessor it seems was not knowledgeable in mental health and wrote what suited her. I plan on appealing but this time will get professional help to complete the assessment.

Hi yes I get pip for bipolar disorder and bpd. It's an intrusive questionnaire but worth it. Mental health issues can be severely debilitating and I cannot work because of my illness. I got support from my psychiatric doc to strengthen my claim. Good luck.
