    Hi @Sav44 welcome to the community.

    CAB have a great site about filling in PIP forms that goes through it question by question.

    You may be able to get help filling in forms through your local:
    • Citizens Advice
    • Age UK (who help people age 55 and over)
    • Welfare rights groups
    It is really hard to fill in these long forms by yourself. If you regularly see a hospital consultant, do you know if there is anyone at the hospital who can help you - some NHS settings have welfare rights advisers attached to them. Citizens Advice and Age UK are both good suggestions, as is a carer's centre which some local authorities may have. You can also check to see if there is a local disability advice/info organisation - again your local council should be able to tell you, or you could look on their website.

    Disability Rights UK have a list of members and you could have a look to see if there's any organisation near you.

    It can be very daunting, so take your time and ask for help from people around you.  You can write notes on a separate sheet before you fill in the form if it helps.  
    The CAB link above is really useful as it breaks down each question, if you have any further questions, do let us know as many of our members have been where you are and understand how tough it can be to fill in the forms.
