ESA Fit for work Assessment unfinished interview
I had a fit for work assessment due to my mental health problems and alcohol dependency. When we arrived the building had no lights on. There was a notice stating that the property had been repossessed. We couldnt find out how to get to the interview (no doubt they were filming the entrance all the while). Then we saw a woman come out of a lift, and she told us it is on the 2nd floor. The lift was strange, only the floor moved, and I am scared of going in lifts but there was no other way. The experience was awful as it seemed as if we were going to be crushed into the ceiling as the gap between the floor got shorter and shorter. I started to scream and hit an alarm button. Security came out and helped us. This was all before the interview. I was so rattled by the whole experience and couldnt stop crying and shaking. Even though we arrived very early, I was not seen for 40 minutes after my appointment time. I could not hold myself together, and just sobbed through the introduction of the interview. In fact the assessor asked only one question, which was when did I last try to kill myself. I then began to tell him that over dosing had damaged my kidneys and was not an efficient way to kill myself. I then was about to demonstrate how the best way to kill myself was, by lifting up my sleeve, when he said that the interview was over. I am very worried, everything scares me, that I will get 0 points as the interview never got started.
