PIP Result-Review-Short Changed Again

Folks I'm going to have a moan...

After completing my PIP Review form over twelve months ago, I had a phone call from DWP assessor. I was asked the usual questions. It seemed to go well.

My review form, which was filled in by a CAB volunteer I explained that my condition had got worse. Gave them various details as to why it had got worse, and gave them a Psychologist report on my mental problems. This backed up my comments on Mobility, Emotional and Cognitive problems, including Memory, Mood Swings, to name just a few.

This morning 27 March I received a decision. I had exactly the same award as what I had X amount of years ago.

My mobility problems have got worse. Gout and Arthritis especially. 
I have developed Bowel and Bladder problems. 
Even with a Psychologist report stating I have serious memory problems, planning and organising problems. I have a learning disability. They say I seem to have no problems. They said that my memory as being good.

Is this normal practice from our good friends at DWP.  If I don't appeal (M.R)
I will receive exactly the same amount as what I have has for the past years. And even this, i was short changed
The volunteer from CAB admitted that the decision to award me five years ago. Short changed me. 
Folks I am not a greedy person. I just want what I am entitled to.  And I am entitled to more than what I have been awarded today. This also the award from several years ago.

Tonight I have e mailed CAB asking for advice.

I am in a right pickldy.

Please folks no harsh words, I have had a couple of bad experiences from this site in the last few years... Thank you
