Hi lovely people. 

I had my first PIP phone assessment which has to be cut short due to my physical symptoms. 

(The person ended the assessment after 5 minutes) 

I've now got another 1 today,  my symptoms have got worse. 

I don't know how I'm going to do this! Riddled with anxiety about this all.

Please help!

    Good morning @UkGuy94. What time is (or was) your appointment today? If you've already had it, how did it go? I'm sorry to read how much of an impact these assessments are having on you.

    Hi, 

    I had it this morning at 09:15. 

    It lasted 1 hour 33 minutes. 

    Completely exhausted both emotionally and physically by it. 

    She seemed nice on the phone, but I guess you don't know with these things. 

    I couldn't go through it again.
