Default pip/capita

We applied for PIP at the beginning of the year and just had my health assessment with Capita. In a word frightening. Usually, my husband talks to everybody official for me. He deals better, i get too tired have no energy and always forget stuff. But he refused, said i had to answer everything, which really did not work as my husband kept having to remind me of things. Then despite me saying i was in pain he made me do exercises with my hands and legs....Super worried we both were and still are. I already felt like hell today but that was just stressful and has brought me down even more. That is the first benefit health assessment i have ever had. Hey does anybody know if they will stop the dla anytime before starting pip
