    Hi @smuzza899, welcome to the community 😃 How are you doing today?

    Can I ask, is this to do with PIP or another benefit? Just asking so if you do have any specific questions we know which benefit we're talking about 😊

    You mention you're broke, are you okay for food and bills? We have an advice page here if you are struggling with those: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/help-with-bills-and-food

    They/Them, however there are no 'wrong' pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    I also wouldn't know what I'd do without support from my family. 8 Weeks is a usual time to wait, and I know the waiting can be the worst.

    I know it probably won't work for everyone, but I found going through all the information and preparing myself for the assessment really helped my anxiety around it. We have an advice page about preparing for your PIP assessment here: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/preparing-for-pip-assessment

    I'll also just move this over to our PIP section incase you do have any other questions about PIP 😊 Feel free to look around the community too, incase there are other things you'd like to read or talk about!
