    Did you challenge the decision the first time? If you didn't was there any reasons why? To constantly reapply using the same evidence you previously used will very likely see constant refusals. PIP isn't about a diagnosis.
    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.
