On Universal credit but cant cope with working

Kimmy78 Member Posts: 4 Listener
My partner and I are on joint UC. Hes working part time and I'm unemployed.  I've had a long history of anxiety and depression.  After years off work with this illness I decided I'd go on UC with my partner and actively seek work. My work coach puts so much pressure on me even knowing how difficult it is for me.  So I've been to lots of interviews after applying for job upon job. I went for a work trial and gladly accepted the job offered to me. Now I'm in panic mode and turned the job down. My anxiety is back with a vengeance.  
Now I'm worried that we wont get any help financially.  Advice please x
