Hi. Please accept my apologies if this is not the correct platform to seek raise the following issue I am a novice . 

I applied for PIP back in Feb 2022 for a variety of conditions.

1. Spondylosis disc prolapsed
2. OCD
3. Psychological Pain Syndrome
4. Re current depression and Anxiety

Sent in supported evidence from specialists

Months after delays received a telephone assessment lasted 15mins. They wrote to me refused my claim awarded nothing requested a review rejected that then appealed through Law Centre they asked me to attend court I couldn't given I suffer from depression and anxiety and this forced me to withdrew exacerbating my mental health. I seeked advice from a Law Centre they appealed my claim telling dwp I should have awarded points but received nothing .  Anyhow I have since been diagnosed with a further 2 conditions recently 

PTSD 
 PARADOX PANIC DISORDER 

can someone advise where I stand with this ? I struggle with my mental health mostly and physical health daily DWP seem not interested . 

Thank you
