Being pragmatic about it, what have you got to lose, providing you can manage the work involved in a PIP claim and the stress that often accompanies it.

Whatever your choice you make your DLA claim will stop, either in the short term if you do not make a claim or in the mid term if you do.

The PIP2 form is quite long and it can be very upsetting to concentrate on the things we cannot do.

Although the PIP2 form looks long and difficult, if you use the guides on this site and break it down into small parts it can be done.
If you are able to then CAB can give assistance with filling in the form
