These benefits problems are making me ill
Hi i had an esa assessment on 29th may and got 0 points as it was a tissue of lies from 6th august i was told i couldnt get esa & ive applied for universal credit. I have asbestosis & ive now appealed against esa & received my bundle of papers from DWP & am awaiting a tribunal date ? if i win my appeal as i can hardly walk with breathlessness & get put into the support group as when the judge sees me im sure he will can i go back onto esa as i had no choice as esa told me it had stopped. Im very confused as i was working i january but had to stop thruogh severe pain.I was getting cotribution based & this didnt affect my industrial injuries benefit ? however UC does ? i was awarded IIDB in may & pip standard rate also ? i am also appealing mobility PIP ? ive worked all my life & now all these benefit problems are making me ill ? im 63 and cant wait till i get my pension in 3 years its getting me down ? im on morphene, anti depressants inhalers as my chest pains are quite severe ?
