Hi all , I have been diagnosed recently by my mental health doctor for paranoid scitzaphrenia , but have been diagnosed before 10 years with anxiety depression and paranoid scitzaphrenia , 10 months ago I had a pip assessment on the phone due to the lockdown, they failed me ,yet I was on pip benefits for a numerous of years , I don't really go out side due to having panic attacks ,, I sent my pip forms of 1 week ago with a support letter from my GP regarding my diagnosed paranoid scitzaphrenia Wich I'm on a injection every fortnite resperdol 25 mg ,, and on sertaline 50mg daily ,, I'm really worried the pip will get rejected again ,, I don't like asking for help , but I literally have no one , isolated myself from everyone,, what's the chance I will get pip ,and how long does it take after sending forms off .

    Hi there 

    I'm afraid you could be in for a long wait 

    A member posted the other day that they had spoken to dwp and had been informed that the whole process could currently take 10 months approx 

    People who applied in Dec are still awaiting assessments 

    Of course you could be a lucky one

    Hello @steve54321

    Welcome to the community, great to see you here :) 

    The process is being delayed quite a bit at the moment, and waiting times are longer than usual, but you never know you might end up being a lucky one as mentioned above. 

    Do you have all the support you need for your mental health? And do you have coping techniques in place for times like these? Please do your best to relax and maybe do a hobby or interest to take your mind off things, although I do understand that these processes can be stressful.

    I highly recommend drawing relaxers the mind could be really beneficial to you at the moment
