I am awaiting a decision on both pip and esa. I have bipolar disorder and have been unable to work for several years. Just been for a very distressing assessment for pip. Any advice or experience of similar would be so appreciated. I am sick with worry. I can't manage without these payments. No savings, financial support. HELP

I will move this post into the PIP section of  the forum and I hope people will be able to share advice. Many members have been through the process. I hope you find the community a support network and please do let me know if there is anything else that we can do to help :)
