Hi everyone and happy new year.
I had my assessment a week before Christmas and it went exactly as I thought it would. I have multiple health issues but they were only interested in the pain in my lower back, everything else was of no interest to them.

    Hey there @Letty17 and welcome to the community!
    Sorry to hear your assessment wasn't the best experience, but fingers crossed for a decision in your favour. We're all here if you need support with anything.

    If you just fancied passing some time, our Coffee Lounge and Games Room are always great. :)

    It's normal for them to concentrate on one thing and not on everything. If they think that's where you may qualify for either LCW or LCWRA then there would be little point in asking questions about all your health conditions.
    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.
