    PIP isn’t awarded based on any diagnosis. What matters is how your conditions affect you against the 12 PIP activities.
    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.

    Hi @sammyp7146 :) As poppy123456 has explained, PIP isn't awarded based on what diagnoses you might have. 

    I know it can all feel a bit confusing and overwhelming! Have you had a look at the descriptors linked above to see whether any of them apply to you? That'd be a good place to start.
