TOPIC: PIP REVIEW SUCCESS

PIP REVIEW SUCCESS 8 months 3 weeks ago #179517

Sooo relieved. After receiving & returning the PIP review, I nervously waited.... For the majority of the form, I replied 'no change', apart from a couple of areas when things had worsened, and the walking question where I ticked 'varies'.
I requested the past 18months documentation from my GP & picked out any relevant hospital letters & reports, & sent copies.
I took two telephone calls in the same day from a lovely lady asking for a little more info. She wanted to know about the 'varies' reply. I explained I was unsure how to answer as when I am in the full throws of an episode of pain I can not walk at all. When not, I can walk some way but not far, maybe 200m max. She then sad, "would you say between 50m & 200m then?" I explained I was suffering with depression & very apprehensive about this review. She told me there was nothing to worry about, but of course I still did.
The brown envelope came today & ive been awarded enhanced care (as before) & standard mobility (new). What a weight off! For four years anyway!
Invaluable info & guidance from this site & comfort knowing I'm not on my own in feeling the way I do in this experience. The best £20 I would advise anyone to spend.
