    Hello @jen1964 ,

    PIP is not related to any conditions you have but how you compare against their scoring system. So it's best to approach it from that angle.

    Measure yourself against their scoring system and whether you now score more points. Focus entirely on whether your problems match their criteria. Think about how you can put into words the way you now meet the scoring points in every section.

    They will consider you as a whole and you should too. If you ask them to review your scores they will look at all your scores and not just the new ones.

    There is a lot of good information on Scope's website and others and you can phone them to discuss it too.

    Good luck.
