    Good news I’m just waiting for my pip form to come. I’m on DLA I’m so worried it’s all I can think about. I’m on middle care and low mobility for epilepsy. I don’t think I will qualify this time around after look at the points system. I can’t cook with no one at home I basically don’t use anything that’s hot and can’t bath if alone and never lock the bathroom door. 
    I do need help when I’ve lost bladder control but not sure if that will count. I sometimes get a warning but others don’t. I heard people say they got the mobility points but not the care. If I don’t get it I will just have to manage without it.

    Hi, like you I am transitioning from DLA to PIP and yes...it is all consuming!
    But the problems you are having with cooking, bathing, continence are all very valid points. I need help with all these things too and put everything on the claim form.

    Have you got help to fill the form in? I had help from a benefits advisor. Had my f2f recently and didnt get a feeling either way how it will go. All up in the air.
    Good luck with your`s. xxx
