Rang to see if they'd looked at report. The person said it'd be 3-5 weeks. Could they see my result?

    It sounds like the letter they sent you was "we have all the information we need to make a decision" which is automatically sent to everyone and quite pointless. It means nothing other than what it says and a decision can still take between 2-12 weeks, sometimes longer after receiving this letter.
    Asking for a copy of the report isn't always the best idea because if it's not what you expected then your anxiety can become even worse.
    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.

    Hi @savrina :) I'm sorry to hear that this has affected your mental health so much. Are you receiving any support for your mental health at the moment? 

    Best wishes for your PIP outcome. The wait can be stressful for many people, but hang on in there. How do you feel the assessment went?
