    Mine took 17 months for a tribunal only because some one with a similar name cancelled it and the clerk cancelled mine by mistake so they had to reschedule it but at my appeal the judge and doctor only took 2 mins to give me enhanced on both,dont give up it is a long road but worth it in the end

    Please don't give up,l put my appeal in last 25 July 2018,l waited til 11th June for hearing,l had telephone hearing,the judge was really nice,the dwp didn't turn up for my hearing,the disability doctor asked loads of questions l was on phone hour and half
    My pip l applied for the assessor lied on my report,l got turned down so my dla stopped for 27 June 2018.
    You need to get loads of medical evidence,l too suffer mental,OCD,killing myself,all the usual mental health
    If you have support,from doctors,councillor,get them to do ya letters,l did,l sent a whole load throughout the year.
    If you can't go hearing cos of anxiety,like me.request a telephone one,get letter to support it,if you can get citizens advice bureau,to help,the women l saw did a points letter to tribunal,saying the descriptors l had.
    .your be ok,I wasn't expecting the outcome l did from judge!when l was on phone to them on my hearing,l had a belly button infection and the flu!they took it easy on me.
    My mum was present as well,they spoke to her,too mum told them truth!
    Please don't panic,l thought l give you my experience,see if it helps
