    It would be impossible to speculate anything at this stage. It's very easy to second guess yourself. All you can do is wait for the decision, which can take up to 12 weeks once the report was returned.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I can hear you are feeling really worried at the moment @kateymatey. Would anything help to reduce your worry at the moment and make things feel more manageable?

    Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything at all we can do to help, even if that's just extending a listening ear  :)

    I'm confused.  If you know the assessment has been done, you are entitled to a copy of it, if you request it.  So I don't understand why the would say no need?  Did you clearly say you wanted a copy?  As like I say you are entitled to it and if available should be given that I know.

    Some call centre staff will refuse to send a copy of the report out to you before the decision is made. If this happens then just ring again to speak to someone else and they'll probably agree to send it. Though receiving the report often causes more needless anxiety.
