    Hi @Jacquilucy, and a warm welcome to the community.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, and I'm sorry to hear about your PIP experience and outcome. That must have been really disheartening.

    It's important to remember that not all disabilities are visible, but I can understand your frustrations and I'm glad to hear you're appealing the decision. This Scope guidance on appealing DWP decisions may help you to get started, and we have lots of knowledgeable members here on the community: please do feel free to ask any questions and we'll do our best to advise.
