    It's not about the diagnosis but the way your illness affects your daily function.

    First thing is to take the PIP self test. Do not try to make the descriptors meet your problems and be very hard when scoring yourself.


    Please come back if you need further help

    Here is another site which helps http://www.mybenefitsandwork.co.uk/pip/indexxx.php

    50% of claims for PIP get refused, the best option is getting someone to help, CAB might be a start.

    Sorry but this is not true. The majority of claims are successful first time, we seldom hear from these claimants as they have no need of assistance

    I think you may need to go check, this figure is from the DWP own reports, it is report that the DWP say 87% are happy with the "service" but there own figures show different, I could quote you the figure for monthly claims, but if more than 50% are asking for MR then they are not happy with the service.
    Sadly if I start giving figures which the government supply, someone will come along and mark this "Thread Closed"
