Although minimal functional restrictions are currently present. Given that she has multiple longterm physical conditions and longterm mental health conditions which are known to be fluctuating in nature medically it is reasonable to suggest a review period of 1 year and 6 months to assess whether there has been any change in finctional ability. 

You deserve a day where worries don't get in the way of anything. A day where...even if some people are insensitive or unkind, you're not going to mind because the blessings you received are far greater than the burdens you experience. Remember, stay positive!

    Would this mean I am regarded with disability? ? Will this mean I will be rewarded with PIP? Thanks a lot! ?

    No, it's doesn't mean you'll be awarded. What you need to look for in the report is boxes with dots/ticks and these will be somewhere at the back of the report. Use the PIP descriptors here and compare those dots/ticks against them to see what score, if any is recommended. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/Migrated_Documents/adviceguide/pip-9-table-of-activities-descriptors-and-points.pdf

    Usually the decision maker goes with the report but you'll still need to wait for the decision to be made. If you're not happy then you have 1 month from the date of the decision to request the Mandatory Reconsideration (MR)

    No, not likely. They are saying that you have some level of disability but not enough that causes the impact that you would need to get an award.
