Compliance interview letters

2 DWP white enelvopes were delivered today. I felt uneasy. Both interviews. One in a big city job centre and one in my own job centre. One hour apart, same morning. One dated 12th December and other 13th December. With the threat fail to go and we will stop your benefits. Signed by a compliance officer, wanting ID and bank statements and savings, as she states some changes may mean your benefits are affected. I had written to them a while back giving the new name and address of my new medical practice, as I had read in a paper you should tell them. I really can't see why that could have my benefits stopped. I have high blood pressure from severe anxiety, can not cope with society or everyday life and poor physical health. I have already lost 2 teeth from Bruxism and nearly my life when one became infected and then set off Cellitis and had to have emergency operation to safe my life.
A hospital doctor has asked my GP to prescribe something to help me calm down, they are trying to treat my Bruxism. Only the GP checked my blood pressure and said it was high and then prescribed me a dangerous drug. 14 have died from heart attacks from taking it. No chance of me ever calming down. They won't let me. The DWP can only contact me by post. I need a disablity worker as an advocate. Life is already not worth living. The NHS have failed me every step of the way, failing to treat chest pain caused by my hernia. They have taken me of medication I need life long. My mind is working overtime, and I have been sleep depraved due to physcial reasons for a longtime. Communication with DWP is very hard. And with the letters only coming today and most advice charities closed for xmas. I doubt I can find an advocate. So my benefits will be stopped. They have given very little notice and ruined xmas. I find it due to bascially having a breakdown, unable to control my temper. This is the third time they have ordered me in for some type of offence. And I hadn't done anything the other 2 times. My boyfriend says don't worry, but I do it unconsciously and grind my teeth. Last time in was a malicious neighbour. The 2 top canditdates both died in the lockdown. And why hasn't DWP actually mentioned what these changes are? No clues at all. Sorry for posting. I guess it's my way of getting it out of me. But won't help me sleep. I guess it's their plan to force me onto Universal Credit without any protection. Or just leave me with no money so I am evicted and on the street. So much for the government helping the vulnerable in the crisis. They don't even like my way of managing my bills and expenses. That was evident the first time. I have brain fog, so won't really be able to assist them in some ways. And already been accused with sharing a bed twice with strangers. Working once and making lots of interest. Which was actually TSB paying 5% on my benefits current account many years ago, and the Taxman informed the DWP, and they wrongly thought I had lots of money. They never apologize and don't care if you collpase in a heap. They belive everyone is a fraudster. But some of us are just trying to survive the day due to our disablities. And can't cope with stress. They are like the Gestupo.

    Said the latest statement. I have tried by online form and phoning my local disablity centre for help, but they must have closed for Xmas.
