Waiting for decisions is sending my anxiety through the roof

This waiting for a decision is driving me nutty. It's all I think about all day & at night. I know it's out of my hands & what will be will be, buts it's part of my condition. I feel ill in the head & want it all to be over.

    Have you phoned the DWP to ask for a copy of the assessment report?  It might be a while until a decision is made, but the report should tell you which way the decision is likely to go.

    I understand the anxiety and mine drove me crazy for the 4 months it took for them to make a decision. Sorry I have no better advice than to try to ignore it.

    Yes I have last Monday. Still waiting for it to arrive. Even that's stressing me out.

    Kind Regards

    I know it's no comfort, but it seems like there are a lot of people in the same position at the moment!  Just ridiculous delays with the whole system.  You have done all you can for the moment.  I hope you hear soon.
