    Hi @meymay93 - I am sorry this has happened.
    Can you reply to the email saying you have been waiting for a social worker to call all last week. Tell them your mobile phone number in case they have not got this, and ask for a social worker to ring you using that number as soon as they can.
    You could also try ringing your GP as you have said how helpful she is, and tell her what has happened.
    Is your friend coming to see you today?
    Please try not to worry. Remember you can talk here any time. There will nearly always be someone here for you.
    You can call the Scope helpline on Monday if this does not get sorted. Telephone 0808 800 3333

    Hi,

    I'm sorry to hear this. They may have rang your house phone and not your mobile, which is why they are saying they rang you. You need speak to your GP and tell him what has happened. It's an easy mistake to make.

    I always ask people to ring my mobile but there a few that still continue to ring my house phone.

    Hi try and not stress about it reply to the email saying you didnt get a call, they may have rung the wrong number

    Put your correct number in the email and as suggested contact your GP to explain

    I'm sorry to hear that your back pain is still bad @meymay93 :( But spending time with your friend and her puppy sounds like a great day in! I'm really glad she's there to support you. 

    Are you getting any help for your back pain at the moment? 

    And have you heard back from your social worker yet?

    Hi @meymay93 - I am sorry you still would have difficulty making a cup of tea because of spills. You can buy a kettle tipper so you can pour safely and not hurt yourself. There are some here: https://www.completecareshop.co.uk/kitchen-aids/kettle-tippers/
    Did Tom manage to get a social worker to ring, or visit you?
    It would be good to make sure you have the help you need after your friend's visit.
    Have your mental health team rung you? If not, perhaps get back in touch with your GP as she seems very understanding.
    Remember you have us all here to talk to any time too. :)

    Hi 
    Not yet mental health team not call me yet when I call I am live message they not get me back monday pip gone call me for assessment but I am wory any one came support me if I call Ot are they can support me because my dougther back holiday 14 day carantine i am anxiety  panic because my friend cant speak English 😓😓
  • chiariedschiarieds Community champion Posts: 4,709 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi @meymay93 - I am sorry the mental health team are not helping you yet.
    With your PIP assessment, you could ask for another date, saying you need your daughter to be there to support you and she is still quarantining after her holiday. Try that, and then you will not be so worried if your daughter is with you. :)
  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Administrator Posts: 1,422 Pioneering
    Hello @meymay93 It's lovely to see you about the community.

    I'm sorry you haven't been able to get in touch with the mental health team.  Did you leave a message for them to call you? 

    Also, @chiarieds advice about re-arranging the PIP assessment so your daughter can be with you is good.  Would you be comfortable doing that?  :)

  • meymay93meymay93 Member - under moderation Posts: 150 Courageous
    Hi
     I will on my own I don't want to call them because my dougther last min bring another meeting I am panic badly but I am gone told them I am panic attact 
  • chiariedschiarieds Community champion Posts: 4,709 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi @meymay93 - I am sorry your daughter will not be with you when you have your PIP assessment because she has a meeting. Will your friend be with you for support anyway? Even if she cannot say anything, it might be good to have someone with you.
    Try not to worry, they just ask questions about what you wrote in your PIP claim form. Take your time answering, and ask them to repeat any questions if you need to. If you struggle, they will understand it is because of your problems. If you need a break for a few minutes, let them know.
    We will be thinking about you, and the assessment will be all over and done with soon. You can do this. It will be OK. :)

  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Administrator Posts: 1,305 Pioneering
    I'm glad your friend can be with you for support @meymay93 :) 

    Try and take some deep breaths. The assessment will be okay. We've all got our fingers crossed that you'll get the support you need. 

    Has your social worker been in touch about getting a support worker?

    Hi @meymay93 - I am pleased to hear from you, as I have been having troubling getting on to Scope this afternoon.
    As Cher says, do try and relax now, as the assessment is over. You have got through it, so well done.
    Try not to think about it now, and distract yourself with some music or TV. :)

    Hi @meymay93 - I hope you are feeling a little better now, and have read Cher's email. I have been through a PIP assessment too, and it is not nice to realise the problems you have. But you have got through it, and the assessor will realise the problems you have, so do not worry. :)

  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Administrator Posts: 1,305 Pioneering
    edited September 15
    Have the care team said that the GP will get back to you at all @meymay93?

    Hmm, what was the number you tried to text? The SHOUT number is 85258.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're unable to sleep. Why do you think that might be?

    Hi 
    Yea still wait gp to call me I text shout 85258 i have already sleeping problem but yesturday i have assestment and i was on my own bad feeling make upset 
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Administrator Posts: 1,305 Pioneering
    I'm not sure why it didn't work then @meymay93 :( Maybe they were having some problems on their end. Do you have the Samaritans number if you need it? 

    Hopefully your GP will call you soon! Please do keep us updated. Did the care team say how long that might take?

    It's understandable that you were upset after the assessment, especially as you were on your own. Is your friend able to come and visit you today? That might make you feel a bit better. 

    I hope that you get a better night's sleep tonight now that the assessment is over.

    Definitely keep drinking lots of water @meymay93, and have a little bit more of that soup.

    Try and remember that the anxiety will eventually pass :) Is there anything you can do today to take your mind off of things. Perhaps watch some TV, or listen to some music?
