pip review

Hi I recently sent off my pip review, I was on both lower for mobility and care, I wanted to be honest, as I now go for walks locally on my own, I first went out a few times with a friend to get used to it, its not that regular but I can go out for 20 minute walks locally even though I feel fear, if I go anywhere else like doctors or dentist my sister comes with me and I go to places I don't know with family and friends but I need to be with people I know to go places I don't know how would this affect my current mobility award last time I scored 10 points on mobility with Cannot undertake any journey because it would cause overwhelming psychological distress  now that I can go walks locally how would this effect my award I told them everything i'm saying now. any help would be appreciated. thank you

    It will depend on how often you are now able to go out. If on the majority of the days (at least 50% over a 12 month period) you are still unable to undertake any journey then 1E will still apply. 
    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.
