Changed from DLA to PIP, went 17 months without any money

I had to change from HIGH RATE DLA to PIP. I was awarded a big fat ZERO. After the appeal procedure it went to a tribunal 17 months later! In the mean time I lost my mobility car, The hearing date finally arrived and I was awarded the enhanced rate of mobility. How can they take a high rate DLA to nothing with PIP? So, I was 17 months without  any money. I wonder how much longer I will have to wait for my payment? If they over pay you they take it straight away and in most cases they take it before you have recieved a letter stating the fact. So it leaves you without anything.
