Any Help I'm so confused
Im so confused when I moved in April last year and had to change my ESA (work related ) one to universal credit
they sent me a UC50 form , which someone from the citizens advice filled out and even when I recieved my first payment they included the extra £128.25 for "limited capability for work" ,
They didn't sent me for an assessment , I just been through the process of renewing my PIP and within a day of that decision I get a call from DWP saying I have a telephone assessment for the limited capability for work on July 2nd ,
I don't understand why now and not when I first applied for it , I can't believe I've now got to go through all this telephone assessment stuff again ,
I was so relieved to have done the PIP and now back to all the worry again ,
I suffer terrible OCD and when speaking about it with the PIP assessment it just made me feel so low for ages and also more aware of it ,
Because I had to tell them the reality of it and everything I do etc , just that part alone was an awful experience ,
I got CBT hopefully after all this covid is over and it's bad enough thinking about talking about it face to face with someone but with that is the hopefulness that it will help me stop it ,
I never tell anyone or talk about it because I'm more aware and the rituals keep rising (just some to my therapist and that's why I'm on the waiting list for CBT) ,
The thought of having to repeat all that makes me feel sick ,
Anyone else suffer with OCD and any help ful info on anything you might have done that didn't make you think more of it afterwards x
