That is great news, especially that you have ten years  >thumbsup< >star<

Thank you for posting about it because it gives me hope as I wait for my result to arrive. I burst into tears on the way back to the car after my face to face, it was not pretty. I hope Spastic Diplegia is understood in the same way Cerebral Palsy seems to be.

Nah, I prefer being enigmatic and mysterious. And seeming exactly like I have CP but not having it...

The letter finally arrived and I have got enhanced for both  >crying< :-) It is award for a 'ongoing' period' which is explained here 

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-to-end-unnecessary-pip-reviews-for-people-with-most-severe-health-conditions

Thank you for your support, the result is a relief especially after how the F2F went. 

One interesting aspect was that I got a ESA letter the other day and it had the same date on it as today's letter so I think they probably did look at my ESA paperwork again too. Phew I feel like I can get back to moving forward in life.

This can't be right - enhanced for both?  But you're still alive and you haven't spent two years going to tribunal to say the expletive obvious all over again!

Oh well, mistakes happen.  But it really won't help the assessing company's performance statistics.  I'm sure they're still aiming to turn down at least 80% of claims and under-award the rest in order to get their contracts renewed.

(PS. Congratulations to you and everyone who's succeeded in getting what they're entitled to.)
