The relief was immense. I've asked for a copy of the assessors report to see if it gives some idea when I might be reassessed. Big thank you to all Mods for invaluable advice and guidance.

I hate that dreaded brown envelope
I had my phone call early May , sent the forms and the book of my conditions with it, it was like posting a novel.
I told myself not to worry, I wasn't expecting the letter back on the 19th July from SDA into the support group without a medical. Interview I was OMG , RELIEF.
Really chuffed for you..:)
