Should I try reapplying for PIP?

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if I should try reapplying for PIP for myself as I have loads of health issues like my asthma, depression and mobility problems.
I have tried to claim it for my depression quite a few years ago, but was refused as I didn't have enough proof of my depression or something like that (I can't remember exactly what the reason was for me being refused before). I was thinking of reapplying for PIP for my mobility problems, but I wouldn't know how to get the proof I would need to help my claim as I have had X-rays done on my left knee and foot in the past and they came back clear.
I just don't know what to do as my fiance is thinking of reapplying for PIP himself for his dyslexia or his bad back (I'm not sure which or if he's thinking of applying for PIP for both of his conditions), but he's hoping that his mum will be able to go with him for his appointment as she's a community carer in and around the town we live in.
I won't have anyone other than my fiance to go to my appointment with if I did reapply for PIP.
I am so confused with everything.
