I made an MR for PIP. I've decided to appeal as there are things I can't do anymore. I'm anxious

PIP APPEAL 
aswell as waiting for my ESA reassessment appointment,i made a mandatory reconsideration for PIP and the daily living part they gave me 7 points twice even though my health has not got any better. I have epilepsy and blackouts which i have fallen many times that it has got worse over the years. In short ive decided too appeal  against PIP as family have taken over things i used too do but now cant do anymore. Im very anxious but feel i need too do this.

    Hi there 

    If you have done the mr then you will get a decision 

    Success rate at mr isnt that good but tribunal success is a lot higher. 

    See what happens with the mr and then if needed you can decide if you want to take it to tribunal
