More PIP crap and ESA

Today I got both my ESA renewal and that huge wad of notes you get before a PIP appeal. The ESA isn’t so bad, I’ve got it two years in a row without even needing an assessment, support group, unfit for work etc. But PIP?!?

Application and appeal number two now. So many lies yet again, mistakes in their part that are laughable. Such as the assessor got audited and praised on how good her report was, yet it’s littered with inaccuracies, spelling mistakes and more eg. She went from fiancé to finance, ok autocorrect fair enough, back to fiancé to partner to husband, back to finance and more. If I didn’t laugh I’d cry!

Why do they lie so much 😭😭
We’re getting legal advise this time because it’s ridiculous 🤬
Says repeatedly about how I have “high intelligence and good cognitive insight” as if that means I can’t have fibromyalgia and mental health issues 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

This is more of a rant than anything, and just sucky they both arrived on the same day

The assessor said that I was intelligent and what's that got to do with care and mobility needs I don't know. But getting an award for PIP's with schizoaffective disorder. Did all the forms. With evidence from social services and MHS but no help with interviews but have a personal assistant.
