Hi all, I'm Ben and I'm 26, currently struggling greatly with my mental and physical health and fighting the DWP who have refused me twice for ESA. More about that in my post on what's happening in the ESA forum.

    Thank you both for the warm welcome, i've posted a long-ish post over in the ESA forum, it's taken a while as re-living and writing it all has taken it out of me. I've got to contact the doctors to get some letters printed and proof documented for the tribunal!
