    Hi @kouro, I don't believe we have met, so hi from me!

    How are you doing today?

    I'm sorry you were unable to get PIP. Did you apply, or have you been told you won't qualify?

    @kouro, hello and welcome, them as you say are correct in saying are not sick, you have a diagnosis. PIP is a benefit not awarded on a disability, diagnosis or your illnesses, but on your abilities to function preform the descriptors in a safe and repeatedly and timely manner.
