    Hello @sicktodeath74   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and also sharing.

    I am one of the team of community champions who help and advise new members who join.

    Please ask if we can advise on anything.

    All I know have to report any changes plus asking your Doctors for additional information.  For reassurance need to know more about how your illness, disability or condition.

    I had my first assesment just over 2 years ago and I had no choice but to go for the assesment they said

    Most people have to attend face to face assessments. If you don't attend your benefits will stop.
