    also one thing to bear in mind when applying for pip is your abbility to exagerate or simply make up diferent dissabilitys  or your ability to do certain things . and believe me being honest will result in you geting next to nothing  take me for example i applied for pip just befor i had my right leg amputated above the knee so you can imagine the problems i was having to warant the removal of the limb and i get the lower rate of mobility and nothing for the care component  and considdering i was unable to stand at all without the use of 2 crutches   and the amount of people i know who are driving around in there mobility cars  and are or seem to be perfectl fit to me is amazing.  i work full time and always have and i belive this go,s agaiyou also . if like me you are prepaired to push yourself and have a decent life regardless of your dissability you will get penalised  for it ,if on the other hand you are quite happy to sit on your ass all day feeling sorry for yourself and what you cant do  you will be richly rewarded  FACT
