Hello. Just been going over my ESA form and extra letter I sent them. Still gonna add a bit more ready for assessment next week. Obsessing a lot agen about it all. So so tired, waking up in panicked state every morning, rocking rocking! Really messed up the walking bit on the form, made it sound as tho I can walk far better than I can. That's cos was in such a panicked state wen filled it all in. Am still in a state about the pip appt being two days after. Have told them on forms about not being able to leave house or attend appts on my own (then find it totally stressing even wi somebody wi me). One thing has sprung to mind. Do you think that going to both assessments within two days will go against me, even tho I will be 160% stressed and I am still considering cancelling the pip one at last minute anyway, or alcohol may have to be involved to get me thru it all? I just want them out of the way now but worried they will think I managed both in same week so I can't have the problems I say I have. Really hope that makes sense!

The appointments are with different Assessment Providers and were requested by different DWP departments, it's quite likely that they are unaware that the two are so close together.

You can try moving the second one (PIP?) but don't forget that you wanted your advocate to be with you so you need to factor in their availability and you can't speak to them until the morning of the first appointment.
