    Hi @catherinerichards and welcome to the community

    Im so sorry to hear how distressed you are about this, I can understand your frustration.

    If you are experiencing ongoing suicidal feelings, you might feel as if there's nothing that could help. But there is support to help you cope with the problems that may be causing you to feel suicidal.

    You can see the MIND website with lots of information and support and also you could call the Samaritans on 116 123.

    Please do reach out and speak to people, you are important and people do care.

    Is there any help i can seek about all these assesements and forms i had to do im getting help from a psychrist for my depressive staite of mind which seems to be helping i just wish that the dwp would leave alone for a while, they'v had all my medical reports all of which say i im not capible for work as i suffer from meniere's disease and drop attacks which come suddenly with no warning so both of my hospital consultants have said i cant go out on my own unattended they have wrote letters staiting this and they'v had letters from my gp but every time i go to the face to face assesement they say im capible for work what can i do

    Hi Catherine, @catherinerichards. Glad to meet you, but sorry you're in such difficulties.
    I am not a benefits expert but we have experts here, and they will be in touch with you in due course. Bear with us.
    Perhaps @CockneyRebel will take a look :smile:
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hi Catherine, @catherinerichards,  and I'm only too glad to be of any help I can. Unfortunately that is sometimes not a lot.
    Your post is very much in the right place here, so I'm hoping some of our experts will respond shortly. That may be affected by the weekend, I don't know.
    I'm just going to remind you of the lovely Sam_Scope's words earlier, regarding suicidal thoughts. As someone who has been there I can say it is not the way to go :) If I had succeeded all those years ago I would never have met folks like you, and that would have been a shame.
    Stay with us, Catherine. You matter. We're listening.
    Warmest best wishes,
    Richard
