    Hello hello Steve51,

    Thanks for your post.

    currently I have been unable to get out of bed for the last three weeks, feel drained of all energy and demotivated. Eating and sleeping are haphazard. At wits end. Have been out of the house once to go to an assessment where they kept me waiting for an hour!

    I think I have a case for Maladministration as numerous procedural errors have occurred and provable untruths uttered by DWP.

    Hi @PTSDdisabled

    I’m very very sorry to hear about your current problems.

    There’s a lot going on around “ESA” at the moment so don’t worry.

    I have been on “esa” for some time now so I don’t know how I stand.
