Good news

Hi everyone, 
Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who helped me out (and for all the online resources I was directed to) with my questions etc. I applied for PIP in May this year, and as of yesterday I've found out I have been awarded enhanced rate for both daily living and mobility. 

As well as thanks for the help, I want to share my good news as a hope for anyone who might be struggling with the process and thinking of giving up. Honestly, I was so close to giving up - my first report gave me 0 points, the response to my MR bumped that up to only 2 points for daily living. It was so demoralising and really upset me, but I managed to put in a request for appeal. The DWP had until the 12th Oct to reply to the appeal request, but didn't reply at all until the 13th when I was told they had changed their decision in my favor and so the appeal had been stopped.

So yeah, I hope this can give hope to anyone who has maybe been awarded 0 points first time round, to keep pushing through if they can. And thanks again to everyone at scope and on these message boards for the support.
