refused PIP

edited September 2018 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I've been on DLA for quite a number of years then filled out the form for PIP and am now being refused, My condition has worsened and there are other complications that have arisen but cannot get doctor's report as I am a full time carer for my 32 yr old daughter and miss most of my appointments. I am in pain every single day and really hate taking medication. Plus the fact that my daughter suffers with sleep apnea, I have to be alert and aware of her needs. Who can I turn to regarding an appeal? I try to buy things that would assist regarding our disabilities but it leaves us with very little to survive on

    Unfortunately PIP criteria is different than DLA it is not all about medical conditions and diagnosis it is your ability to carry out the PIP descriptors on a daily basis 
    Two people can have the same condition but end up getting different outcomes
    Being a full time carer for your daughter is not going to help you get PIP
