Esa and anxiety
Hi can anyone help me. I have lived with anxiety for years . It all started when my mum died unexpectedly from something she shouldn’t of died from and was very young. Seeing her body triggered some huge mess up in me and hasn’t ever healed and if anything anxieties have got worse in some areas or not improved. I try to work but mess up as I’m a wreck and feel like a little mouse and heart pounds and I’m quite mute at work. I started a new job last year to try to work for my kids and I was so scared I crashed my car on the way home. I want to try for esa but worried anxiety is overlooked to get it or how I can prove I have it andquite badly as I am embarrassed about it , as I don’t know how to answer the questions when it comes without it making it seem nothing is wrong as I think I try and hide it or make it seem better than it is as I am really embarrassed feeling this way. Can anyone advise if anxiety is overlooked for esa xx
