cab tried to reassure and said "oh they're not that bad" omg it literally was as though I was "on trial"!!! As though I was a criminal it lasted 90 minutes and I was uncontrollable and they said "if you can't pull yourself together we'll have to postpone it"!!! They said because years ago I had TWICE used bus at end of my street when car broken down + before knee ops that"I could walk 200metres"!!!!

    So sorry to hear about your experience Chelsea girl. My assessment felt like a grilling ., I expected any minute for a spot light to be turned on.

    it seems everyt piece of evidence you give has to be brief and relevant, otherwise it is twisted and used against you.
    When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
