PIP application rejected

I have bipolar and aspergers and even spent a year in psychiatric hospital, but I got the letter and I didn't get PIP. If I'd gotten close to the 8 points, I would understand, but they gave me 0 in everything. My mental health issues hold me back so much. I feel so invalidated. My mental health nurse said I should get PIP before I applied.

    @Blatherskite, welcome to the scope community , I always advise anyone applying for PIP should take a self test to see how you would fair when and if you continue with your application for PIP. Read through the descriptors to see if you meet the criteria for each activity, remember the answers you submit in your application form have to be justified at your face to face acessment.

    They do that to nearly everyone in hopes that you dont put in for a mandatory reconsideration or appeal it and give the self pip test on the benefits and work site there's multiple answers on there and try and get doctors letters , therapist letters and family statements and any other evidence such as your prescriptions I took the pip self test I should have got 24 points for daily and 12 for mobility but got 0 after the face to face because the assessor report was complete lies and fabrications  I put in for the mandatory reconsideration and the original decision had been over turned as I received the back payment at midnight and if you decide to take it further you can't until you've put in for the mandatory reconsideration and write a letter with what you disagree with be blunt but direct

    Like you I should have received Enhanced Mobility & Care as was the case for the two previous awards. I received 0 points.
    Put in for an MR (the 3rd in 5 years) and was told that the original decision still stands.
    At that point I gave up - I have had 5 years of their stupid games and decided that I no longer wanted to play with them and wanted to go home instead!
