Hi
This is the last thing I would have dreamed I'd be doing after turning 40 in Jan! However I am.
I really need some help and the posts I have read on this site is so warming.
My situation is I was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy (DCM) basically heart failure in 2012, after tests etc its heritity!  I worked as a Sales COnsultant with same company for 15 years!, they supported me so much but due to illness I resigned. Since then in 2017 I was hospitalised for 5 weeks with septis and pancreatic probs. 
I attended universal credit medial and received award and told not to look for work.
applied for pip and refused got letter which states zero points ??? I really wish I could work but instead I need advice on how to appeal this pip decision??
thank you in advance any one who takes time to respond Gx
