    Hi @tiredout welcome to the community. I am sorry to hear this, is this for PIP or ESA? We do have some information on appealing a DWP decision.

    Hello @tiredout Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Sorry to hear this. I know myself have had something similar to my own personal circumstances.. I do understand what you are going through.

    I am one of the team of community champions who guide, advise and help new members who join the forum.

    Please can I advise might be worth speaking to some one who can help and guide you to look at your situation.

    Welfare support or additional support from CAB.

    Looking at if how and why this is happening . I know this in my own health issues. Was on a treadmill for every 18 months continuous for a long time.

    Having the assessments and appeals .

    On every 18 months to longer declared fit to work then unfit then back after another round of assessments and appeals. Declared fit and so on .

    Understand it is soul destroying.

    I had a floating support from a mental health charity intervene. Informing the DWP by letter and attendance that this is not doing me any good.

    Hope I can be supportive. Please ask if I can help and advise with anything.

    Pleasure to meet you.

    Your not alone.

    Take care.

    Hi @tiredout, that sounds exhausting. Hopefully you'll find plenty of support and perhaps even some who have been in similar situations. :smiley:
