Phone call after wca

Minnie18 Community member Posts: 13 Listener
Hi Everyone, 

I had a face-to-face wca on 21st Dec which I felt went well. Today I received a message on my journal from a dwp decision maker saying he is going to ring me on Thu to 'confirm my health conditions ' and that he would 'like my input' before he makes a decision. 

I am trying to stay positive and think that at least they have not said no outright, but it is really stressing me out. Has anyone else had this happen and still had a positive outcome? 

I tried so hard to make sure I clearly explained how my condition affects me in relation to the descriptors, giving examples from my day to day life. (I have already sent scan and x-ray reports along with hospital letters.) I don't know what else I can say to convince them. 
I honestly just feel like giving up as it is all so stressful.

    Sometimes before making a decision on the WCA they will ring you if they have any further questions to ask. It won't be possible to predict anything at this stage. Hopefully, it's a positive outcome for you.
    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.
