    @jacqui63, hello and welcome, as youay or should know PIP is not about your illness, diagnosis or the prescribed medication you take. PIP is assessed on your abilities to cope manage the PIP descriptors safely, repeatedly and in a timely manner as per the PIP regulations. You should Google self test for PIP and be honest with your self and see how you would fair with your additional disability. Remember the answers you submit in your application form will have to be justified at your assessment.
