    Thanks @thespiceman for the tag.

    Hi and welcome @tonianna

    I'm sorry to hear this! Unfortunately, this isn't the place for help regarding this because no one knows anything about your case because we can't see any paperwork, we don't know how your conditions affected you at the time the decision was made on that award because that's what they will have looked at and not how your conditions affects you now.

    May i ask how long your solicitor is away for? because you really do need expert advice regarding this. Is there any other solicitor you can go to for this? Have you tried an advice agency like welfare rights or a law centre? If not then put your postcode into this link and it will tell you what's local to you. https://advicelocal.uk/

    I'm sorry i can't be of anymore help.
