Not recognised for my disability

Deejustneeds1Deejustneeds1 Member Posts: 10 Listener
I was awarded five yes ago Standard PIP. A few weeks ago got called into review. Two Y's ago my back became more painful and slowly made walking and standing unbearable.  I was going to get a wheel chair with the mobility section of PIP which I was certain would be awarded.
A lovely understanding assessment person I saw and left heard.
The report reader said NO. I use a crutch to steady myself. I do not go out other then to my G.P. The said no.
Appeal requested and now we have a virus.
So I am at home with asperger 30 yr old and my son left his supported living flat when P M locked down .He has cerebral  palsy and learning difficulties. 
We have many pets which my autistic  son see as friends. I am ser ching on line for supplies for three adults and much pet food.
I "helped" my son out financially before this hit and now overdrawn.. 
I felt mentally challenged at Christmas when son was section. It's been one kick in the teeth after the other. 
When will my needs be recognised. ?
I know this is complaining and nothing will come of it so why do I bother.
Hope you all stay well and safe.
