    I have my PIP appeal today . Eek !

    I was awarded 6 points in total - I only want / need a further 2 points as I feel I'm entitled to standard care.

    I have a last minute bit of evidence that the judge may or may not accept !

    Any tips ? :)

    I won :)

    I was awarded enhanced rate care . I can't believe it - and the relief it's all over!

    The panel were lovely even though I cried all the way through and forgot most of what I was saying .

    Does anyone know what happens next?

    Live happily ever after? Or at least for 9 months, before the next form needs to be filled in!

    Pleased to hear it went okay, although sorry to hear you're so ill though.

    Great news CFSNewbie, but sorry that they put you through all this extra stress.

    My ME was much worse after appearing before a tribunal. Not only was it stressful but there was a lot of work to get all the paperwork, forms, doctors reports etc for them.

    Congratulations though. people who have never been through this often don't understand how hard and unfair it can be.

    Hi, I'm just waiting for forms to arrive in the post to claim pip. Any advice ? Ideally I'd like to have enough points for a mobility car, walking these days is too painful, thanks x
