    HI,

    It's impossible to even try to sepculate anything at this point. Wait about a week and then ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    Good luck for tomorrow's assessment.

    Support bubbles can still continue through this next lockdown. I'm in a support bubble with my elder daughter and grandson, which i'll continue to see.

    hi tara, yes thats exactly what you, ve got to do. your not on your own as i get days like that where my mental health kicks in bad and im in tears and not afraid to show it and all because of something and nothing and at 67 i cant do loads i used to be able to do which does my head in. there are lots of lovely folks on here who i reckon could get you through anythng so never be afraid to ask.hope you are having a wonderfull day.
