E.SA. Result After Tribunal
Hi friends, I have just joined this site and would like to ask some advice on the result of my tribunal. I won my tribunal, great. I have now received a letter from the d.w.p. Saying I am in the support group. No way with my stress/anxiety levels, pain and fatigue can I do this. I have mental health problems also. I was diagnosed with fibromialgia in 2017 and awaiting an inconclusive result for sjogrens disease. I have bipolar, unstable personality disorder. The list goes on and on. I was in the support group until it was stopped due to scoring zero points at my assessment. Why? My mental health was why I was awarded e.s.a. And put in the support group. My health is so much worse this last 12 months, I can hardly function. A friend of mine on the health unlocked site kindly did a statement on exceptional circumstances due to my mental health problems. E.s.a. 35 did not apply for me. How ridiculous when I have severe mood swings, anger problems . Can anyone tell me if they have had the same outcome after a tribunal. I have requested the statement of reasons why 35 did not app,y. I then if I have to will apply yo the upper tribunal. No way can I be put under such stress as it exasperates my fibromialgia flare ups and my mental health. ThankYou in advance.
