Benefits process is pushing me over the edge

I have Fibromyalgia & am struggling as my husband has been of work since june with a Terminal Illness & now although i get pip myself we are now on a joint claim, & I have had to apply for UC & ESA. Now they have sent an appt for a Medical. I've  requested a Home Visit as I cant leave my hubby...& even sent a Drs letter to explain im not at all well, plus extra stress & upset with my hubby, loss of my mum in a RTA & my dad died in my arms 4yrs ago from MS....
All this extra stress with another medical are pushing me over the worried about myself, let alone my Dr & Counsellor, & my future. No Siblings, No Children or Family Living close...
Are they still allowed to treat me like this?????
