    It’s not possible for anyone to tell you whether there’s any entitlement to PIP because no one here knows how your conditions affect you. 

    It’s not awarded based on any diagnosis. It’s how those conditions affect you against the 12 PIP activities. 

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello @90stuckstruck

    Welcome to the community! :) 

    I'm so sorry you've been suffering with anxiety, insomnia and depressions. I just wanted to check in and if it's ok, ask if you are getting support for it all? 

    With PIP, if you feel you can relate to a lot of it, it may be worth applying. You can always ring Scope's Helpline for additional support :)
