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

    Thank you for sharing your experiences- I'm so sorry to hear about what you've been through.

    When you say you're going through it again, are you now in the process of doing a new application? If so, Scope's information on PIP and Citizens Advice's guidance on filling in the PIP form may be worth a read. Do keep us updated and come back to us with any questions!

    Unfortunately what you have suffered is nothing new.
