    HI @fordbridge I'm sorry to hear you're having a rough time with the regime, please be gentle with yourself. <3
    With regard to letting PIP know or not, it may be worth thinking if the new diagnosis would have any affect on any of the descriptors on the PIP forms you'd not already mentioned? PIP isn't about any diagnosis, it's about how your disabilities affect each of the descriptors on a daily basis.
