And my son has Aspergers Syndrome. He's in his mid thirties and lives at home. We are just going through PIP appeal system.

    Hi Michelle, I too am new to the forum having joined last week.  I have severe arthritis to both knees and shoulder. Having failed at Pip twice on the third time was successful and even get the mobility component for a car which has become a godsend. You will find lots of advice and help on here though about applying, hearings, appeals etc so hope it goes well for you. X

    Thanks, Sharron - that's very reassuring. Never thought we'd ever find ourselves in this position. Have always been so trusting that right will win the day and that people in a position of trust and always trustworthy.  Been a very difficult time coming to terms with reality

    I am sure it has been. I have been with a friend today who has just lost his PIP and said fit to walk. the guy can hardly move. They work in some mysterious ways on these assessments. I was told once it's knowing the right answers to put on the questionnaire and not always the honest ones. I couldn't believe what I was hearing but these days I think it's true...  Good luck though with your appeal.  Happy to chat if you need a neutral friend anytime

    Hi @MH1606

    Welcome to the community. What stage are you at?

    As @sharront says, you'll find lots of people who have been through the same thing.

    We also put together some tips recently, that might be useful:
