    Hi @meymay93 Dont worry at getting upset most people do, it is hard to hold the emotion when having to explain to someone how you are affected and why

    I cried most of the way through my first f2f as it seems you are confirming your disability to them and yourself and admitting to yourself what you can no longer do

    The assessors are used to claimants getting upset and are used to taking this into consideration

    Hello @meymay93

    I'm sending you a big virtual hug for getting through the assessment, well done you.  I know it isn't easy.  

    Please try not to worry about crying.  You did your best and that's what is important.  

    Did you have somebody with you for support?

    @meymay93 Ah that's fair enough.  Sun isn't for everyone!  I'm glad your friend has kept you company.  

    Make sure to take care of yourself  :)

    Hi @meymay93 - your friend is kind in hoping to make you happy. Just sharing time watching something together is good, and she is giving her time to help you. I hope you manage to get some sleep tonight and feel a little more relaxed now anyway. :)
