Lcwra assessment

Hi all ,  I'm new to this and starting to panic a little bit ( I suffer with ptsd and ocd intrusive thoughts) as my appointment date gets closer I'm really starting to worry , I've written out a few things on a piece of paper so I don't get side tracked. I'm just wondering what sort of questions do they ask you during the assessment?
And also do they question your medication I've put all the medication on the form they sent me but I'm just wondering will they ask again ? Im probably just stressing myself out at the point

    It wouldn’t be possible to tell you what questions they ask because that will depend on how your conditions affect you. 

    I’ve never personally been asked about any medications because I’ve always included that information in the forms. 

    Just try not to answer any questions with just a yes or no because by doing this they will often come to their own conclusions. 
    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.

    When it's paid from will depend on what date exactly you reported your health condition/provided your first fit note. 

    There's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money Is paid from the 4th month, with first payment being the end of that month. It's not paid at all during the waiting period. 
    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.

    Providing there were no gaps in your fit notes until the decision was made your waiting period will be. Oct/Nov, Nov/Dec, Dec/Jan.. LCWRA starts from AP 16th Jan to 15th Feb and first payment will be 22nd Feb. No LCWRA element is owed.
