    Hi there 

    The assessments can be stressful especially fir those suffering anxiety 

    Lots of people with mental health problems are awarded that's why they allow applications for mental health 

    Try not to worry all you can do now is wait for the decision  

    You can request a copy of the report after 7 days but not always recommend doing so as it is only the recommendations and not the decision so can sometimes cause more anxiety 

    Let us know how you get on

    Thanks for the insight .. I’m a worrier anyway so I’m causing myself more anxiety by doing so . I feel like I didn’t say as much as I’d have liked too . Thankyou for the reply

    I think the whole procedure adds to already anxiety problems. I’m also waiting for the decision, and I’m pulling my hair out with the worry of what it will say. Hopefully you won’t have to wait too long.

    @smith1212 Hello and welcome to our online community  :)

    I'm unable to see your original message but I think it relates to being anxious about the outcome of a PIP assessment and how it went?  I can really empathise with that and would second the responses you've received about trying not to worry until that decision letter comes through.  I know, easier said than done right? But we'll be here to support you if you need/decide to appeal any unsuccessful decision via mandatory reconsideration so be assured of that  <3  

    Just to check - are you getting sufficient support with your mental health from a GP or other professional?  How are you coping in general? 

    I'll have my fingers crossed for you and please keep us posted with how you get on.  Good luck.
