work capability assessment

Hi. Hello to everyone. My names Paul. My first posting. Short as have to go to mental health centre. I'll make further comments later. Last week I had an emergency assessment after I phoned 111 scared I'd kill myself a completely had lost control. It was at 4 am to ascertain if I was able to be left unsupervised,on my own. Guess what 4 days later my DWP assessment your health journey is over,I'm fit to work!! If they had let me rest for a few months without going through this hostile nauseating process I perhaps would have been. 40 years never had a benefit. Not raking this laying down I assure you. Anyway off to mental facility. Yet another assessment. Have a good day everyone! Paul (gad a depression sufferer)
