    Hi @BriNk, welcome to our community :) Hope you find the support you're looking for here. The people here are very welcoming!

    Filling out PIP forms can be very stressful, I myself had to ask for an extension and they gave me a further month to complete them. They are generally fine with giving out extensions. I'm glad you have your wife to help you, I couldn't have done mine without my partner.

    When they said they would call, what was it going to be about?

    I'll also just move this discussion to the PIP section of our Community, it'll be more visible there to people with PIP knowledge!
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
