    Oh god, it's a totally shite system. So sorry you've had such an unfair **** of a time.

    I had an awful with benefits. I really can't recommend the free scope helpline enough. They had new ideas, helped me sort my brain and told me what I had a right to etc. 

    Always worth seeing gp for a mental health mot. Sounds like you're under enormous stress and having an awful time. It's unlikely you are at 5he end of the road just a **** bump in the journey. 

    How are you feeling this morning?

    To be honest I really don't know I'm sad I'm angry I'm feeling sorry for my self I feel like I'm on the edge then I feel oh wot the hell  then these feelings repeat  again.. if got council tax  last trying to put something in my mind that never took place haven't been able to get any reasonable conversation about why I don't owe this money mainly bailiffs and court cost c.a.b. have spoken to her all of a sudden she emailing trying to get me to sign this day that is it across the board  I'm just amazed. If it wasn't in front of me daily is be concerned  it was in a horror story but hey thanks for asking..i hope your well and contented

    Nightmare, gosh. Hope it improves. If you start to feel desperate tell the GP receptionist as you may get an emergency appointment.

    Meanwhile, take each day, each hour at a time

    Feel I'm going in circles getting different information depending who I talk to on the phone it appears  last week I was told benifits stopped  due to not finding a letter .when I told person on the phone about letters I received  told me not possible .had I of taken her advice I would have missed appointment to see work advisor  but from past experience   thought it best I attend .clearly correct thing to do .. how can this be what's going on. When told d.w.p. about it told me call centre  I must have spoken to week before explained to another lady  nothing on computer   ..really I think someone needs to sort something out .. I can't cope any more ..

    I'm so sorry, @cathie. I've moved your post to ask a benefits advisor to see if they can shed any light on this for you.

    Hi cathie,

    I'm sorry but I can't quite work out what has gone on here. Is it ESA that you were receiving which has stopped? And has it been stopped because you failed to attend an assessment? If you could be a bit clearer with the circumstances we will be able to advise better. Thanks.
