    PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors. You really can't compare 2 people when it comes to a PIP award because we are all affected differently by those conditions.

    Yes, a lot of people are refused after being reviewed but also a lot of people go onto be awarded successfully again after a review but we don't often here of those good stories.

    If you've recently been refused, was it a review or a change of circumstances that you reported? Either way, you have 1 month from the date of the decision to request the MR which should be put in writing stating where you think you should have scored those points and your reasons why. Adding a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.
