    Hi and welcome they dont usually ring to say they have your letter 

    You wont really hear anything now until you get the decision letter

    HI,

    They sometimes send a text but very rarely ring. Other than that all you can do is wait until the decision is made and that can take anything up to 10 weeks, sometimes longer.

    @ketokid Ah no, I'm sorry you have experienced anxiety over this  :(  We have everything crossed for you.  

    Have your panic attacks settled down a little?  Are you managing them alone or with help from your doctor?  Please let us know if you need any support.

    Hi Cher thanks for your concern  everybody so kind on here. the panick attacks are  not as bad today but still got heart palps all the time, I just got some meds after a chat with my doctor serteline tabs. been on many tablets for this problem but cant cope with the bad side affects. However i am going to give them a try. Will just be glad when its all sorted out  🤞

    I take Amitriptyline which also made me very drowsy when i first started taking it and also when my dose was increased. It took quite a few weeks to get used to it and now the drowsiness has gone. Hopefully, it will be the same for you too.

    Hi @ketokid, I hope your body adjusts to the medication quickly! Being drowsy can be really frustrating.
