    Hi @misstracey. It sounds like a very difficult experience, I'm sorry they didn't have somewhere suitable for you to wait even though you'd requested it. I hope you've got a nice evening planned to relax after a stressful day?
    If you wait around a week and give them a call you can request a copy of the assessment report.

    Sorry to hear that! 

    After a week, you can call back to get them to send you a copy of their report. In the meantime, how will you treat yourself? Good luck @misstracey

    I find massage oils relaxing. I also enjoy sitting on the couch reading something after a hard day of work as well. Keep us posted.
