    Hi @tracyg
    Welcome to the community, good luck on your PIP decision!! 

    So many of our members have been through this and many felt similar to you, it can be a really stressful time!

    Take a look at our PIP category, its a mix of advice and information along with lots of personal experiences of applying for PIP.  Lots of people find it helps to talk to others who understand.

    Hello @tracyg and welcome. Good to have you with us.
    As @Sam_Scope said, many, many of our members have experiences similar to your own, and this means your post will be sympathetically read by a lot of people here. The powers-that-be, within the state, want you to feel like a fraud, want you to be hesitant and unsure, because that helps them with their bottom line, of scaring and worrying people out of benefit.
    We know better. You're among friends here who understand.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
