    Hi,
    When you fill out the forms you need to treat it as a new claim even if there’s been I changes.
     You should add a couple of real world examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you. Adding information such as where it happened, who (if anyone) was with you, what exactly happened and what the consequences were. 
    You should expect another assessment because most people have them. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
