    Hi @weetracyc welcome to the community. I am so sorry to hear to hear this and I am sorry to hear about your brother.
     How are you doing today? A lot of our members feel this way when it comes to assessments. There's some information on what you can expect from an ESA assessment. Hopefully not, if so you can appeal the decision.

    You may want to get in touch with Cruse Bereavement Care's helpline, where they offer emotional support. 
    Please keep us updated and if you have any questions, please let us know- we are here to support you.
