Pip assessment

I have a pip assessment coming up and am terrified that I may have an anxiety attack at the assessment. What would happen if I did?

  Any help appreciated.

          What you mean have a drink as in alcohol? What that be a good thing?

         They were meant to come to my home for the assessment but cancelled the day before without telling me and when we phoned them they said it was on safety grounds as I have intrusive thoughts of violence. So now they want me to go the assessment centre.

    To be honest it will go in your favour. I went to a pip assessment and the women said she saw no evidence of anxiety although it was in my doctors report. Also the assessor are not doctors or nurses.

    Is there someone who can go with you?  Having a familiar person with you would make it easier.  Also, explain your concerns at the beginning so that they will be aware of the situation and tell them if there is anything that can be done to reduce the effects of the anxiety for you.

    Just got a letter saying they dont need to see me now and they have enough evidence to finish the report. So I think they are now doing a paper assessment. Dont know if this is a good thing or bad thing. Will just have to wait and see.
