PIP Appeal without evidence

Good morning everyone,

My request for PIP was refused 3 days after my assessment. I requested a mandatory reconsideration and was still refused (with 0 points).

I'm planning to appeal but I'm worried about evidence to prove my case.

My regular GP has just retired. I'm having a physio appointment today. Social services helped with a couple of handrails at my GP's request and I've had an assessment with the mental health team. I'm on a waiting list for CBT but this is it.

I have a diagnosis letter (discharging me back to GP for management). A mental health assessment report and a couple of referrals. I simply don't have anything else. I don't take prescription medications due to allergies.

I'm worried that without evidence, I can't prove I struggle. What should I do?
