I am awaiting a decision on both pip and esa. I have bipolar disorder and have been unable to work for several years. Just been for a very distressing assessment for pip. Any advice or experience of similar would be so appreciated. I am sick with worry. I can't manage without these payments. No savings, financial support. HELP

    Hello @dorisdog100   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry to hear about your experience of a bad assessment.

    Thank you for your question.  To reassure you it is always best to wait for any decision first.

    I know it is hard to wait and causing you anxiety.

    Understand the anxiety and worry as many members have been through this.

    Including myself.

    All I can say is who is supporting you through this. Do you have a support worker to help you.?  Giving you strategies and coping mechanisms to deal with this.

    We are a supportive community. Friendly, care and share.

    Please ask if we can help with anything.

    Best wishes for a successful outcome and decision.

    Take care
