    Hi @louise1971 - & welcome. I'm very sorry about your PIP assessment; my first one was the same, the assessor busy typing, & stopped me from saying as much as I wanted.
    It is upsetting I know, but the important thing now is to focus on getting the right result for yourself at your tribunal. This will be your chance to say how your disabilities affect you; don't waste time talking about the assessor's report, as they just want to hear about the difficulties you have, not your diagnoses.
    The tribunal is not anything to worry about; just 3 people listening to you.
    I know it must be hard to do, but forget the assessor's report. You do not need to worry about this any more.
    Have you taken your doctor's advice, & made an appointment with the Citizen's Advice Bureau? They may be able to help you prepare for the tribunal.
    Please look after yourself, & look at the information my friend the spiceman has given too.

    Hi @louise1971 and a very warm welcome to the community. I'm very sorry to hear that the PIP assessment didn't go well. 

    Are you able you able to discuss things with your CPN?

    In the meantime, you've been signposted to Samaritans (116 123) but have you tried the crisis text service Shout (you can access this by texting SHOUT to 85258), or SANEline (0300 304 7000) who are open from 4.30pm to 10.30pm every day of the year. I don't know if you have a smart phone, but there's also the Stay Alive app you can download.

    There also is this resources from Mind about tackling thoughts of suicide, if you're having these thoughts it's really important you speak to someone qualified and able to support you. 

    If it would help we would be more than willing to try and find you some local support. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us on [email protected]
