Trying to sort out this benefits appeal, its a nightmare.. very stressed about it, but I hope it eventually goes well. I have been without money for a while but I live with my parents so its ok. I hope it all goes ok. I'm not very good at dealing with stress, but I am sat here with my cup of tea and the cat so thats nice I suppose.

    I'm sorry you're finding it so difficult @Astr0cent.
    What stage are you at with your appeal, have you done your Mandatory Reconsideration? Do you claim any other benefits?

    Hi there, unfortunately they denied my mandatory reconsideration. I've been getting help so I've had to take it to a tribunal. I'm in the process of compiling all the evidence together to help me. I have a lot of support usually but since the coronavirus has come at the wrong moment it's meant accessing the support has been difficult. I'm very nervous about this tribunal. I want it to go well.
