Hi all new here but have read through loads of threads. 

I had my telephone assessment on Tues the 10th May. Next day had the text to say they have received it. I rang up and requested report same day they received it. 

I know it says upto 8 weeks for a decision just so nervous. I feel like I won't get it due to knowing some horror stories of people not being awarded it.

I dont know why I'm writing this I suppose just for a little support.

Thanks for reading.

😀

    Afternoon @Mrsw22 Welcome to our great group.
    I know it's the horrid waiting game now - i'm waiting for mine so trying to put it to the back of my brain. I know that sometimes thats easier said then done.
    If your ready have a look around the site or just come and play with us in the coffee lounge under categories, i do find it a good distraction.
    Needless to say if there is any thing you would like to ask then ask some one is bound to have an answer for you.

    I found the assessment ok, had a few tears about certain bits but other than that ok. 

    I had xrays done not long after the assessment so I don't know whether to send the results as more evidence. I find results out tomorrow from the drs. Quite shocked the results came in that quick and dr wants to talk asap about it. 

    So many emotions right now. I hope the report comes soon so I sort of know the outcome.

    Thanks for the warm welcome 😍

    A diagnosis doesn’t change anything because PIP isn’t about a diagnosis.
    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.
