TOPIC: Don't give up folks!

Don't give up folks! 3 months 1 day ago #182367

So grateful and thankful for this site; there are no words except THANK YOU which doesn't seem enough.

Just to let everyone know I won my PIP tribunal (without being there). I think it was due to the 9 page letter I submitted with my Mandatory Reconsideration, plus all the medical evidence I provided that swung it for me.

Please don't give up people. It took me around two weeks to prepare my letter and documentation. My mental health is very poor, I suffer with bad depression, anxiety, autoimmune problems and with all that going on plus feeling suicidal again, I still managed it.

So.......if I can do it......then so can you!

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

That is brilliant, well done Jennie! Its great to see paper based successes as I will have to do the same myself if the assessor isn't truthful xx
