I am feeling really fed up & depressed about my financial situation & life in general. I have had my DLA/PIP taken off me & am waiting for a Tribunal Hearing. My ESA was stopped & I was told to claim JSA. Again the ESA has gone to a Tribunal. I do not get the full amount of JSA because I have a pension. I am struggling to live on £126 per week my savings have been used up & I have had to cash in some investments but they have nearly all gone. I have the local Welfare Agency to help me at the Tribunal & have claimed everything I can but I am just fed up of waiting for something to happen. For the last month I have been signed off sick with depression & anxiety but the note expired today. I had an appointment at the Doctors but forgot about it until it was too late. I had a bad nights sleep, was really tired & had a headache. I got up late just had some breakfast, took some tablets & went back to bed & fell asleep forgetting about the appointment until later on when I woke up still not feeling much better. I rang the Doctor & apologised but could not get another appointment. I have to ring up in the morning to get an appointment. I just want my life to go back to what it was like last year when I had enough money to live on. I was getting out & about & trying to expand my horizons by going on bus rides to nearby places to try & help my anxiety problems with socialising etc but my world has now strunk back to what it was before.
