Have I added too much evidence for my PIP application?

Please, can anyone help me.  I am just filling in my application for PIP (swopping over from DLA).  My question is, I have attached a very large wad of letters and paperwork to help with my claim, at the back of the form.  However, on a different site today, someone said that you should not add too much, making it like they have to try to read through it like war and peace.  So now I am wondering what I should get rid of.  I know you won't be aware of what I have added, but I felt it was all relevant in letting them know all about me.  Please, can anyone advise me?
Thank you.
Tramelia

    I’ve just won my appeal today and I had 154 pages worth so I don’t think there should be a limit on what to send medical wise
