    Hi @christineann I am sorry you are feeling so low. I know you must be really worried but please know that you arent alone, this is a friendly and caring community and there are lots of people here who have experience of changing from DLA to PIP.

    There is a wonderful guide to filling in the PIP forms from the CAB and if you need more help you can speak to our Benefits Advisors or speak to the Scope Helpline on 0808 800 3333.

    I have emailed you as well so please do get in touch if I can do anything to help.
