Hi Everyone 
Hope Everyone is doing OK, undercthe circumstances.
I've just had my WCA on the telephone, which was really stressful. Has anyone had a telephone assessment  ?
I'm already worried about the outcome.

    I'm sorry it was so stressful for you :(  How are you feeling now?

    I've moved your post to our Universal Credit discussion board and if you take a browse of the threads you'll see you aren't alone in finding the process difficult unfortunately.  As @janer1967 says, please do keep us updated though and make sure to ask any questions you might have.
