I had my health assessment just waiting for the decision, all these forums I've been on, no one has said they've actually got ESA with anxiety, I am agoraphobic so my only option is the support group if I dont get that then I guess I'm going to get sanctioned alot, was just wondering if theres anyone that is on ESA with anxiety.

    I don’t no how the Esa system works now as I was in the group for 5years I had f2f meeting but at home...
    also try not to let other people story’s get the better of your aggg, it may be worth giving them a call to see if they have came to a decision.. 
    no body these days no’s what there going to produce at the end of these assements as you here so many story’s !! 
    But yes you can applie for Esa with your condition and also pip please keep us updated
