    Hi @Mandy58
    Welcome to the community! Have you tried contacting them to ask if they have made a decision yet?

    No I have not because I don't know what the outcome maybe and I don't want them to think that I am bothering them and decided to turn me down  i am so worried and nervous at the same time

    Hello @Mandy58 Pleased to meet you.

    Thank you for your post.  Understand you are nervous.  Every body has been through this situation.

    I would advise if it were me to have some one else to call them. Do you have any support.?

    There seems to be a lot of confusion.  You are not bothering them. Please can I suggest contact some one like welfare rights or CAB for support.

    You need reassurance and I can understand that, being anxious and nervous.

    Hope that helps.

    Take care
