TOPIC: PIP Assessment

PIP Assessment 4 months 4 days ago #232111

:sick: :sick: :sick: I have face tp face assessment tomorrow I feel so sick. I was passed for 10 years in 2016/17 and now been recalled for another face to face. EVEN though It had gone to Mandatory and been passed once they had read the Consultants notes. I am worrying about why they have called me back when it is obvious that I m never going to get any better. I feel so helpless. I worked hard ALL my adult life and feel like a beggar. Its so stressful having to keep going over all the details off my illness when all I want to do is be left alone to deal with it. Today I have pins and needles down both arms and feel physically sick. My blood levels are in my shoes.

Hi Hoover1

I'm sorry you are going through this. It is obviously too late, but you could have questioned the reason for assessing you so early before the due date. If your assessment is late in the day, you could still ring and enquire.

Hi, I did ask why and they said it was just a random trigger and that nobody knows why they come up for review. That once triggered you have to go through the motions even though there is no change to my condition.

Hi Hoover1

I know they can ask any time, but that is a very early trigger. Hope it goes well for you.

Hi Hoover1

I am afraid being in the support group does not automatically exempt you from being invited for a face to face.
