Pip report

Hello just got my pip report, I added it up and it comes to 11 points on daily and 10 points on mobility. 
How likely will the dm go with the assessor? 
Am worried they will knock points off and will reject my claim, hearing bad stories online of people getting zeros. 
Am very anxious and depressed. 

It’s been 8 days since they received my report. Am constantly checking my bank or my phone to see if I got the text. 

Also on my report, the assessor put 1A was advised in the most recent pip report, 
what does that mean? 
On most descriptors she took that line, what does it mean ? 
I know 1A is zero points. 
Is she saying that I considered zero points but am giving him etc 2 ? 

Just getting very anxious waiting I can’t focus constantly thinking I can’t sleep or eat.

    Where it says restrictions reported, that’s where she said that by the way

    This is what happens a lot when you request a copy of the report, it causes even more anxiety than ever. 

    The comment about the most recent PIP report suggests you may have claimed before and were refused, is that correct?

    Mostly they go with the report but it has been known for them to go against it, though it’s rare but it can happen.

    A decision can take anything up to 12 weeks after the report was returned. 
    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.

    I can’t remember claiming pip recently, I may have made an application so so many years ago but was declined. 
    That’s all I can remember @poppy123456

    It does indicate that you did make a claim otherwise that comment wouldn’t make any sense. 

    Try to focus on something else while you wait, I know that’s difficult but please try.

    Hi @azam, I don't think I was around when you originally posted but it's great news that you've got your PIP! Must be such a weight off your shoulders :)

    Thankyou @Rosie_Scope words can’t explain how happy I am, for all weeks I was depressed and down constantly waiting for a decision.
