ESA Work Coach Meeting

Hi I am Mill07 and I'm 38 yrs old. I have a meeting with a work coach tomorrow morning and I am panicked and worried about it. I suffer with Clinical Depression and severe Anxiety I cannot go anywhere without my mum and I also live at my mums. She cares for me to a degree as I had a stroke 2 yrs ago and it has left me with a condition called hemoplegia which is nerve damage and severe weakness all down my left side which I now have to use a walking stick fulltime. This causes me problems and discomfort on a daily basis and I don't go out at all only if I had to but even then I won't go alone. My mum attends every appointment with me. So with this meeting tomorrow I'm worried where I stand with my situation. If you could help advise would be gratefully received Thank you.
