    Hello @katrese

    Welcome to the community! :) 

    I am so sorry to hear you are having such a hard time with the PIP process. Can I ask, do you have support around you for the anxiety? There are amazing organisation like SHOUT a 24/7 texting service that are always there to listen. 

    We unfortunately won't know what the letter says until you receive it, I hope it comes soon! If you need any additional advice Scope's Helpline are always there to help too :)
