    Hi @london75, I'm so sorry to hear this. I can see how frustrated you are.

    The best thing to do would be to have a look at this guidance on appealing DWP decisions, and when you feel able to, request a mandatory reconsideration of your ESA. You may find this online tool helpful in writing the letter.

    It can seem overwhelming, but take it one step at a time and we'll all do our best to support you. Hopefully some of our other members will be able to advise too, so please do keep us updated on your progress.
