    Hi im new on here but would like to share my PIP experience. I have bipola and it is very bad at times. Mainly low mood but does go very high at times. I made my application 30 July 2017. I scored 0 points! I asked them for reconsideration as i took an overdose with my bipola medication. They then gave me 1 point for not managing my medication! So i sent it to tribunal. So its nearly 18months of going through the motions with it. Had my tribunal at last on 5/11/2018 and won and amazingly the court awarded me 27 points! So it goes to show never back down from DWP if you feel they are lieing or bending there words.
