    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Pip isn't about a diagnosis and if people have the same condition as everyone is affected differently 

    It is about your functionality against the descriptors 

    I would not worry too much about not seeing your gp recently 

    Has the gp diagnosed the condition and are you taking medication 

    The main focus though is your evidence of how you are affected giving real examples of what happens when you try and do the tasks
