    Hello @darklady1 and welcome to our community.  It's great to meet you.

    Just to clarify so we can better help you, when you say reapply for PIP - when did you apply the first time round? 

    Also to let you know, I've moved your post to our PIP, DLA and AA discussion board and tweaked your title a little to help others spot it.

    Hi and welcome 

    I would start by looking at the descriptors and seeing where you think you would score points 

    The points you have mentioned may not possibly score you enough to get an award 

    There are lots more elements to consider like preparing food,  communicating , takings meds , reading  and finances to mention a few also using stairs is not part of the mobility section 

    You can find info about the descriptors in our PIP section 

    Any further questions just ask
