Unsure if I should have applied for PIP

I am unsure about this PIP. My friend said I should apply as I have COPD. I Left work and am now claiming my State Pension I was told today I will get full Housing benefit and pay less Council tax . I did fill and send forms off for PIP and should get word soon. I am worried now as I saw on the H.B. forms ect that they want to know if I received this payment I said no as that was before I put in for it and my friend said it does not effect benefits, but if that is the case why would they ask then? I now wish I had not applied as I thought it was to good to be true and now that I have got my rent ect all sorted out I now don't want everything changed and what happens if I don't get much I just wish I had not been told about this now it worries me .
