ESA home visit...why?
I am bipolar 1 suffer agrophobia and high anxiety. Firstly I got a letter asking me to go to an appt the next day...and explained my situation. I have to see my Doctor next week for a letter from her tpexplaining why a home visit us preferential. I have never had to have one of these my Dictor and Psychiatric Cinsultants letters fully explain my condition. However p, the form asked me if I was receiving any treatment for other problems, So I made a note of my athritus and walking can hurt as it's in and around the ankle. I also had a torn retina which I'm getting treatment for. I didn't copy the form and there wasnt anyone to help me fill it out. The reason why I cannot work is my mental health and nothing else. The rest is due to getting older. I feel once any physical problem is mentioned they will overlook my mental health. I'm very anxious and worried.
