Work and Capability Assessment

travis50 Member Posts: 13 Connected
I am currently claiming ESA WRAG--they sent me for Work and Capability Assessment on November 26th. 2019.  Terrible interview, and I took anti depressants with me and explained my situation as best I could, but I feel that this time they are going to stop my ESA. I had no other proof with me. I have problems getting outside. Even putting the rubbish bags out is a problem. First thing Assessor said to me, was. 'You made it here okay' after I'd told him about my acute anxiety going out. I'm 55, in the depths of despair, and I fear I'm not going to make it through. The election result has done nothing to lift my spirits. I now worry that because I haven't heard anything, they are going to wait until after Christmas to stop my ESA. I don't know what would happen then. Can anyone give me any clues at all as to what may happen, and why it's been two weeks or more since I had my Assessment and heard nothing? Thank you.
