    A sick note from your GP isn't going to help at all for a PIP claim because it has nothing to do with being unable to work.
    Sleeping isn't considered in any of the descriptors/activities either.
    For the MR you need to write where you think you should have scored those points and your reasons why. Adding a couple of real world examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you. With information such as where you were, who (if anyone) seen it, what exactly happened and what were the consequences.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    If the MR decision doesn't change then you should look at getting some expert advice and help with the Tribunal stage. If you can get representation then even better. Start here. https://advicelocal.uk/

    I believe that Citizens Advice can help with this, yes @jellybean84. Is that who came up when you looked on advicelocal.uk? 

    Please only share what you feel comfortable sharing here :) That's completely fine.
