I often over think and read way too much into a text or email or letter like this type . Also my review was only last week and its already gone over to the DM . ??

    Yes, it's a standard text. The time it took to return the report means nothing other than it's been writen and returned. Some reports are returned the same day as the assessment.
    The decision can take anything up to 12 weeks, rather than the 6 weeks you were advised.
    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.

    @bigpineapples I really hope you hear something sooner than later. The process is horrible for so many. Have you got support around you? You can always vent here :)
