    Unfortunately that is true. Whenever the subject of benefits comes up in a discussion where I am involved those that aren't disabled tend in general to suggest that the disabled should expect to have to put up with these inconveniences that is if they want taxpayers money. At that I point I disagree saying that I too am disabled to which the reply is that I don't look disabled.

    It is extremely unlikely that anybody who has the same type of condition/illness will have the same level and type of difficulties that cause impact on life. 
    No one can actually answer what points you will get and it is useless trying to compare one person with another.
    What you should be doing is concentrating on your own case and putting forwards the impact that you suffer.

    PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, it totally depends how you conditions affect you daily. You cna't compare 2 people when it comes to PIP awards because everyone is different and all conditions affect people in completely different ways. Good luck with your Tribunal.
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.

    Yes I agree you just have to tell them how it effects your daily life and give them as much information as you can and good luck
