5 weeks and 2 days since my f2f and still no news I last rang last weds the Bloke was surprised then that I’d not heard yet. 
Im getting in a tizzy because I now have f2f for my p I p next Friday and I’m visioning losing everything how horrible this waiting is. I don’t want to ring again because I’m now hoping that no news is good news !!

    Sorry to hear that you haven't heard anything yet, @gerrys6.

    As you say, lets hope that no news is good news! Keep us updated on your situation: I'm sure many of our members will be able to empathise with the waiting game and how tough this can be. If we can advise you on anything at this point, do let us know.

    Best of luck, we'll be thinking of you!

    Just phoned again and I’ve been placed in the wrag group.. thank god my only gripe is whilst I’m glad I ve kept it that my anxiety means I go nowhere alone can the wrag group if they feel ur not well enough for that group place u in the support group or is it only the dwp? .. I don’t want to do an m r in case they think I’m taking the mick  and if I did do an mr could I lose the Esa altogether ?

    @PippaScope that last message was for you and everyone else who supported me with their wise words thank you so much.. hopefully my p I p will go well this Friday.. I shall be looking for advice on that this week. I’m in the lowest rate for mobility and daily living and I would not mind keeping it at that! But after I filled in the review I told them honestly my arthritis has worsened I’m waiting for two ops on my knees one after another and my anxiety and depressions have worsened. I’m going to be trying to do a course of c b t even and then intensive therapy for other areas of my life that caused my anxiety and depression. How do I come across at the f2f I m useless with people in that sort of environment I m not sure if I come across as aggressive to cover the fact that I want to cry!.
