ESA issues have thrown me into a relapse
I've been diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica a year ago and just diagnosed with fybromyalgia. I have been without any income since my ESA benefits were cut in July. I'm living with my mum and this is a very big financial burden as she is 88 and on state pension. I've appealed my decision which come back as refusing to overturn the decision. This has twice thrown me into a relapse because of the stress of it. I just don't know where to turn. My chronic fatigue, dcognative impairment including ifficulties processing, pain, emotional ups and downs, inability to cope with stressful situations and balance issues make it difficult to predict and know what I can achieve in any one day. I feel like one of those donkeys or horses being whipped and forced to work when I am trying to control my health and recover. This is all putting me back. I can't see how any employer would allow me to come in late when the mornings are bad, leave my work to go and sleep, put up with my lack of processing ability. I drop things and my balance is not good. I would like to try and employ myself so that I could work when able rather than suffer at the hands a poor employer which is what triggered this in the first place.I need help to negotiate this.It;s just wiping me out having to deal with the worry and the stress and complication of it on a daily basis.
