Preparation for PIP assessment

I'm new to this site. & trying to gather as much information as I can for my Pip assessment on Friday. I can honestly say I am in a panic to say the least as I don't have any experience with the benefits system as up until the start of the year seemed relatively healthy & an outdoors power walker but in the space of 10 months I am reduced to being housebound with suspected RA. I have been assessed by OT & have aids fitted in my house. I am no longer able to return to the job I had so live off SSP for now. 
I have my rheumatology appointment next week but I am beginning to worry about finances & the future!
I still need to buy further aids & my OT advised applying for pip in order to do this but after reading up on the refusals & the stress caused to so many people I'm feeling very low!
