Nerves are shot now - phoned the tribunal as it was 2 weeks ago today, they confirmed the decision come in this morning so will be sent out to us today so we will get it tomorrow morning, I am physically shaking and now officially an absolute nervous wreck

Why can't they email it to you?

beautifulgirls Tue 26-Feb-13 13:51:32

Good luck - we walk in your footsteps shortly so I feel for you.

I understand that protocol is that both parties receive it at the same time so posted out at the same time. If I don't get it to tomorrow then they may email it to me. Think this is worse now - that I know it's coming - my post doesn't get here until after lunchtime either.

Now sat having a coffee and watching the American apprentice - going to be a long 24 hours......

Go out in the morning. To a coffee shop or something. Tonight go to the cinema or watch a film and kill some time.

I wasn't anxious when mine arrived. I was bloody pissed off at the time it took. But we spent most of the 6 weeks on holiday so it made it bearable, though they promised to email it so I was a bit bonkers with internet cafes.

It will be fine. It doesn't matter what the decision is, it will still be fine, because it's not the end of the road.

Tomorrow's bit of paper just tells you whether there's an extra leg or two added onto the journey.

OMG!! Thinking of you. One of the worst things (well not really, but perhaps one of the weirdest things) about this whole SEN experience is how it turns you in to a post-phobic. Never before have I dreaded what will await me when the postie calls.

It is nearly over. You have done all you could. Fingers crossed for a good result but if it isn't, you will have been shafted by a shit system. You will not have failed.

Oooooo, what lougle said....I like that thinking grin

What the last two previous posters said.

Scottishdancer Tue 26-Feb-13 17:57:33

Good luck. I am thinking of you. We too will be in that situation in a few weeks so can imagine how you must be feeling.

Good luck. I'm no expert but it seemed to me that your case was pretty strong so hope you get the right decision.
