TOPIC: Pip assessors report received today

Pip assessors report received today 3 months 1 week ago #217297

Have just got back from my GP appointment and he's writing me a report/letter to help with my MR and I pick it up next Tuesday.

He has given me a bit of a checkup and, apart from my mobilty problems, he said that my mental health problems are worsened as I have chronic anxiety disorder.

Have googled it but can't really find anything.

Have no idea if tnis will help in my MR as he said he is putting this in his report for yhe DWP.

Will have to wait and see.

I'm afraid the DWP cannot take into account any changes in your condition that have occurred since the Decision was made.

Hi Gordon,

That's ok I previously was told it was Acute Anxiety Disorder, it's only substituting one word for another.

Same thing really, I suppose (ish).

Hi Alison,

Thanks for that.

Yes, family and friends is a good idea to include in support at a tribunal.

Hope it doesn't get to that but am sort of prepared.

Forgive me, but remind me, please: did your appeal get sorted at MR stage?

Phoned the PIP helpline today to initiate an MR and then used the guide to write a letter to make it sort of proper and official, so the DWP can't wriggle out of it as I am getting really paranoid about some of the bad press you hear about them and some of the comments on this forum.

Anyway, the letter is just a letter to confirm I have requested the MR and will be sending evidence as soon as

That's about it - oh, and posted 1st class signed for.

The real toil begins next week when I get my GP's letter and write the final draft to complete my MR.

Once that's done, I will chill and forget about it whilst sipping a large, cool drink gazing at the gorgeously blue, shimmering sea on some Spanish beach, if only in my dreams.

Truth is, I can't relax.

Might do once I get some positive news.
