Awaiting medical assesment

sessment appointment in Scotland, I suffer from severe anxiety and have tried to live with it, it has got to the stage where I can barely leave the house for work and look for work so i have been sent the form which I filled in and sent back. I am worried that after the assessment I will be seen as fit for work or limited capability for work as this means while having to see doctors etc to get my anxiety sorted that I will be left penniless until I'm back at work. Does severe anxiety count as being unfit for work? Other info, I'm on universal credit and currently receive money towards my send and a standard allowance. Any help wpuld be appreciated thanks
