Worried sick about my son's ESA
this nightmare started in 2016 ,, when the dwp sent me to an assessor for my ESA she lied and i go noting and was caring for my son so welfare rights advised me to claim income support as i was receiving carers ,, he as alopicia and been diagnosed witih separation anxieties , and shows autistic trades ,, at the time we were living together ,, we have since moved in with daughter due to my depression from childhood abuse and i have autoimmune diseases,, i have scleroderma sever raynards RA sygons disease and hyhated hernia stomach problems acid reflux depression brain fog and anxieties ,,i vomit most days , have a phobia about takeing med s and at times they become stuck in my throat causing me to vomit i was on low dla for 12 years for help round kitchen due to raynoids ,, the welfare rights helped me fill in PIP forms ,, i waited 12 months for a date it came round but at the time i was on strong pain killers for syatica so it was postponed for more medical reports ... in total ive waited 18 months
I went to the courts and was put tho 2 hours of non stop grilling ,,i slept for a day and a half and of course i lost the appeal i feel so humaliated and distressed by it all welfare rights seem to think it was a fare hearing ,, to make matters worse i found my brother 8 weeks ago after hes hung himself due to being harassed from the dwp for mental heath problems ,, so as you can imagine the trauma of that and the hearing got to me i have reach rock bottom
they have decided now its my sons turn ,, im in no fit state to think ,, we had an assments on saturday last week 25th august 2018
my son sits with his head down and talks to no one so i had to try and answer for him i feel its went horrendously wrong ,,if he dont get his PIP my money for careres will stop so that will be another worry my head hurts and i cant fight no more i feel so defeated
im going to doctors today dont know if it will help ,, who knows
im worried sick for the future for my son ,,,, who desperately needs help ive been every where talked to lots of out reach services to be told hes too severe for them to help
