I have borderline personality disorder and probably autism and get very paranoid. My issues have worsened during lockdown due to many things really like queuing up and less stores open and so on and i feel very paranoid unlike before and moods are worse. Im already on esa support group and pip daily living standard rate but should i apply for enhanced or make them aware my issues are worse than before?? Afraid to because some people lose their award and so on

    I’m sorry to hear that your issues are worsening. In my opinion I would tell them so that they are aware in case you decide to apply for an enhanced rate. Also have you spoken to your doctor about treatment for this? If you get treatment from your doctor you could let them know that you needed help. Take care.

    You can't apply for enhanced rate you could only asked for your PIP to be reviewed and before doing that I would seek advice from welfare rights or similar, remember PIP isn't about whats wrong with you but how it affects you.
