LCWRA Review - How to proceed?

Hey all, just received my LCWRA review papers and feel extremely stressed about it. I am getting PIP and LCWRA currently for depression and anxiety.
I was awarded LCWRA last year january, since then my conditions have stayed the same.
I remember reading about just writing ''no changes'' if nothing has changed, is this true? I don't mind writing about my conditions again but I do feel uneasy about having to proof my disabilities again by contacting my GPs to get my medical record etc (I feel very stressed talking to people I don't know). Would not including any supporting documents even if I sent it to them last year and my conditions havn't changed affect my review?

    I would recommend treating it as a new claim, in  so much as writing in detail on the form and getting any medical evidence to send as well.
    Reviews are a part of the claim process I'm afraid, we all go through them as well you aren't alone.

    Timeframes are different for everyone. 
    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.
