    Glad it's all over and it wasn't as bad as you thought it would be. Many people think exactly the same. It often takes quite a few hours to update the online tracker so have a check back later and hopefully it will have been updated with a possitive outcome.
    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.

    Good look with it @Ollyoyster. I know the waiting can be nerve-wracking. Try to enjoy your bath without worrying about it if you can! Check it afterwards. You've done the hard part, well done. I'm glad it wasn't so bad. I often find that the worrying about something is worse than the actual 'thing' itself! I turn it into such a large and scary thing, but usually it's all okay.

    Keep us informed :)

    @Ollyoyster
    Good morning I hope you’re feeling a bit better today. 
    I’m glad you found the tribunal a lot better than you imagined. 
    I have had 2 and couldn’t believe how decent the panel were. 
    After my last appeal in 2020 they couldn’t tell me at the end the outcome but I received a letter 2 days later, it was a positive outcome.
    I really hope you have a great outcome too.

    I to have stage 4 osteoarthritis I’m actually going in for my second knee replacement on Thursday. 

    Good luck ❤️

    So glad it went well @Ollyoyster, that's ace news. :)

    Like @Lou67, I've had two tribunals so far and they were honestly so easy going and friendly. I even got an apology from the judge for how the DWP had dragged things on for 18 months.  That was worth the fight. :) (and of course, best of luck for Thursday, not long to go, eek, exciting!)
