They would not have made a paper recommendation if they did not think that they had enough information to do so, so try not to worry about it over the weekend. Whilst I can't predict a result, most members who have had a paper review have been happy with the result.

I just got my esa report through.
It is really small, I was expecting loads, but I guess it is because it was a paper assessment.

It is for 12 months as the nurse states that she advises that work could be considered within 12 months, that would be nice, I'll soon find out if seeing the psychiatrist will help me enough to get back into work :)

Justification of advice. Evidence considered.
the questionnaire, med 3 and specialist letter, and report from 2013, is that my old esa claim?

The questionnaire and medical evidence indicates there would be substantial mental or physical risk if the client were found capable of work or work related activity because recent in-patient admission, due to acute mental health ward, due to deterioration. She was diagnosed with emotionally unstable personality disorder and medication has been changed.

She has extreme intolerance to stress and self harms as a result.

She is at early stage of recovery and working on managing her condition. She is likely to be at risk of deterioration with added stressor at this time.

It was a nurse that did this paper statement and I cried so much when I read this! People are finally listening to me and understanding what I am going through!!

I know it's only sg for 12 months but reading this has made me feel hopeful that they think I MIGHT be able to work in 12 months :) I'd love to be able to work, I'm going to work with my psychiatrist to hopefully be in that position, but understand that I might not be ready in 12 months, just a pity i wont get the psycholgy for at least 18 months! Fingers crossed though!

B&W you guys are fantastic! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!

This has made me a bit more hopeful about my pip paper assessment!

It would be very unusual for a Decision Maker to disagree with a paper report, so it looks good.

That's good to know! Thank you Gordon!!
Now it's just a waiting game! I don't like waiting lol I might call pip tomorrow to see if the report is showing yet, can they tell you what the report says rather than just sending it out and waiting ages for it to turn up? I feel ill be waiting longer due to Christmas post :huh:
