Awaiting PIP tribunal

I have chronic illnesses as well as mobility issues. I struggled to work till last june, when I became redundant. Always worked, 20+ years, yet I can't claim anything. Awaiting a tribunal date for my PIP payment, as I am in bed or don't leave the house, yet I was only awarded standard living. Nothing for mobility. Struggling with not just 24/7 pain, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety, loneliness and now debt.
