    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and i'm here to help and advise others.

    Ring DWP first thing Monday morning and ask for an extension for the date the form has to be returned. They will give you an extra 14 days.

    When filling out the form you should put as much information as possible about how your conditions affect you. Then add a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    Send relevant evidence with the form because they rarely contact anyone for this. The onus is on you to make sure it's sent.

    Expect another face to face assessment because most people have them.

    Good luck.
