A few months ago I filed a PIP appeal, largely on the basis of a deeply flawed medical, and asked for a paper hearing. This morning I got a letter back saying that it had been adjorned and asking for me to send them permission for them to obtain my medical records from 2016 to now. The problem is I haven't seen my GP in over 2 years, the only medical things I have had have been the odd hospital visit for my type 2 diabetes, which simply isn't relevant to my PIP application, or appeal. As far as I am aware I may still have the option of an oral hearing, but I would rather not do one because I tend to come off as too healthy, and my cognitive problems cause me to just gloss over, forget or omit things, yet I come across as fairly bright and with it, at least to those who want to see that. Because I've been ill for so long (28 years) I consider a lot of things normal, so don't mention them etc. Or alternatively I mention things, and then more things, and then more, and it all sounds so unbelievable that someone could live like this with no medical intervention.......I've been here before (not with PIP) and I know how people react. Part of my case, a lot of it in fact, is down to problems caused by aspergers/cognitive impairment, now I can, to limited degree, eventually solve most problems I encounter, it just takes me a long time, at times I can even talk to people in a relatively normal way, for a few minutes. This is not normality these days, it's a mask I put on, when I have the resources to do so. Or extreme need. I am concerned that this is what will happen at the tribunal if I attend, they will think I am trying to pull a fast one, which is one of the reasons I asked for a paper hearing in the first place. It's what happened at the PIP medical, although I would hope the tribunal panel wouldn't be as biased. However, it they were satisfied with my case, which as far as I am concerned is pretty ironclad, for the way the system is marketed as working, then they wouldn't be asking for additional medical evidence, which I don't have, and they know I don't have because I told them in the paperwork. Attending an oral hearing is likely to make me even more ill, for a few months, and I'm not exactly on top form ATM. So....what do I do?
