Losing money

I was on ESA and failed a medical, I have appealed and waiting for my tribunal but like many others I have had to sign on to jobseekers to get UC even though I am still ill Physically and Mentally, I now have to get sick notes from my GP to prove I am not fit for work, my problem is I can not cope paying my bills or having enough left over to buy food, I get paid of the 17th of every month after housing I get 354.32 to live on, so 12 payments equals £4,251.84, when I was on ESA I was getting approx £250 every 2 weeks which is 26 weeks a year which equals £6.500. even if I got £250 x2 a month (£500) I would get £6,000 which is still £500 short which suggests to me I am losing a months money on either rate, can anyone please help me understanding this as I feel I am not alone
