    Hi @beabea, and a warm welcome to the community!

    What stage of the process are you at, are you filling in the application form? Citizens Advice have some great online guidance for completing the different sections.

    I have made a claim for fibromyalgia and depression and diverticulitis my mobility is bad and I use a stick to get around. I can't even drive my car anymore so I have to rely on others to drive me around which is only once a week

    PIP isn't about a diagnosis, it's how your conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activities based on the PIP descriptors.

    Ring DWP at the end of the week to request a copy of the assessment report, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report.
