    Hi @rebeccahinton2 and welcome to the community. Do you want to tell us more about your blood test?

    Could you also tell us more about what you would like from Scope? Are you looking to volunteer or do you mean that you would like help and support with something from one of the Scope team? If we could have more details we can have a clearer idea of how we can best help you. Thank you.

    Hi @rebeccahinton2 welcome to the community, I feel like you have a few different issues here.

    Your ESA has been stopped. Do you know why? What have they said to you?

    You are scared of having blood taken. Is this due to happen at hospital or your GP? Can you speak to them about your worries beforehand? If it is the fear of pain, they can often use a numbing cream. If you are scared of the needles, you arent alone and they do understand that people have those fears. Could you take a friend or family member with you?

    Volunteering - Im a bit confused Im afraid as to what you mean? Can you explain a bit more?

    If you would like to speak to someone, you can call the Scope helpline on 08088003333.
