So I requested my PIP assessment report on Friday and it arrived today. Overall it’s okay however there’s quite a lot that was omitted, namely my cardiomyopathy. 

Still, going off what the assessor gave (and assuming that DWP go with the assessor) I scored 11 for ADL and 18 for mobility. Will just have to wait and see what the final verdict is. It was very difficult to read the report and made me feel quite emotional, really. Assessor has recommended a review in 24 months but states that it’s unlikely that my condition with change in that time.

    Thank you for sharing this update with us @gemma84 :) Fingers crossed you'll get the award you're hoping for! 

    We've heard from quite a few people that reading the report can be quite emotional. Make sure that you look after yourself today. Do you have any plans to take your mind off of it?

    Not really no,  I’m overthinking. Requesting the report was definitely a double edged sword. Still, as least I now know what was written and that it was factually accurate, although lacking in some areas. I’ve heard horror stories of assessors lying and all sorts.

    Yes, it can really vary @gemma84

    Perhaps you could pop over to the coffee lounge and take part in one of our more light-hearted topics or games?
