    Before you can request the Tribunal you need to first go through the Mandatory Reconsideration (MR) process. Have you actually done that yet?
    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.

    PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis. You didn't answer my question. Have you been through the Mandatory Reconsideration process? You can proceed to Tribunal without doing this first.

    I can't tell you what you should write because i don't know how your conditions affect you. The only person that knows that is yourself.

    For now you just need to request the Tribunal and give a brief reason why you disagree with the decision. You can do everything else at a later date. https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal

    You can also get some expert advice from an agency near you. Start here. https://advicelocal.uk/welfare-benefits

    Hello @kamilah

    Welcome to the community! :) 

    As Poppy has said, you can reach out for help through Advice Local, and Citizen's Advice also have an advice page on challenging a pip decision - the tribunal process, that you may find helpful to read.
