    You will have to go to a f2f dont worry about the evidence just look at the PIP descriptors and how your condition affects you carrying these out make sure you are aware what your sister has put down on the form as they will refer to it at the f2f

    It may be worth you speaking to your GP and asking if they can provide some evidence.  A vague letter is not really very helpful, but if they can comment on specific things that you have difficulties with this may help, or a print out of your Patient Summary from your GP notes may help.  Always read through any information you get though to make sure it is consistent with what you have said on the form.  You may like to have a look at this page too https://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/benefits/pip
