Customer Question

Hi, 3 yrs ago I was on a psychiatric ward with severe anxiety and depression, I was told to claim pip, I was refused coz I made eye contact, I have appealed against this twice, and it has took all this time to receive answers of no again, I am now wanting to appeal a third time and wonder if you have any advice
Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this? In which country do you live? If different, which country is your legal question related to?
Customer: No and I live in manchester england
Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I had to go to an interview october 2017, which I only came out of hospital august 2017, this is where I was refused so I appealed which took over 12 months, went to the tribunal they gave me points but not enough to claim pip, so I then tried to appeal to the upper tribunal saying I felt I wasn't listened to and kept being contradicted, they have now refused my appeal but have gave me two other possible routes to go down, one is to go to the high court which I will have to pay a fee or setting aside a decision which disposes of proceedings, which I don't understand
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so
