Hi all,

I received my letter today and I’ve been refused PIP. I actually scored 0 on everything. I was hoping to be awarded for mental health issues and my constant fatigue but nothing. Not sure if it’s worth appealing. I didn’t fill in a form, everything was telephone assessment. 

Thank you for reading.

    You can appeal it if you feel comfortable with this at the moment, as @stormy said, though it might also be worth considering if you have the support you need with this at the moment. If you do appeal, we would encourage you to focus on how your day-to-day is affected rather than your diagnoses as per se  :)
