I am just waiting to go to the local JobCentre for my first signing for JSA after being taken off ESA for being a Malingerer or Evasion as the Jobsworth Decision Maker put it as I had missed some Assessments due to ill health & cancelled a couple of others because the timings were unsuitable. I feel really awful. I have a cold & had heat exhaustion over the holiday because of the high temperatures. I have not received any benefit for a month. I have to go otherwise I will not get a payment. I received a small loan from the DWP at the beginning of last week but that went within a few minutes. My overdraft has an overdraft, a Direct Debit has bounced. I had an appointment with a CAB Advisor but I had to cancel it as I felt so rough. She has already told me I should be on ESA in the Support Group which I was until the DWP decided to harrass me by firstly getting me to apply for PIP when I had been on DLA for years & then refusing to give it to me purely based on a Assessment Report full of inaccuracies & I am waiting for a Personal Hearing at a Tribunal. They then decided to review my ESA and because of failure to attend for the silly reason of being ill they have stopped that. I have again had to apply to the Tribunal. I have been told the only benefit I can get is JSA. I feel really bad. I could not sleep last night because of a nightmare & Anxiety Attack. I had a job to eat breakfast & have been feeling anxious all morning about going. I just want to go back to bed with a couple of painkillers as I feel really rough.
