I had to appeal twice for ESA and once for PIP, I won every time. They always ignored my medical history and the letters provided by my doctors. For PIP I went from 0 points at assessment to 32 at tribunal and won enhanced care and mobility. I was penniless for months.
When you can’t walk much and have no money, you can’t even go to the food bank. I spent days not eating at all and could not take my medications. When they decide these policies or interview people, they always talk with middle class people who even if disabled, don’t know what it means to have no food on the table. People like me don’t count, poor and disabled I am nothing.
