    Hi

    ESA isn’t about a diagnosis, it’s how those conditions affect your ability to do any type of work.

    Hi @Pablohsgshshsh and welcome to the community! That must have been a shock to have a diagnosis for two years and then have it changed, how are you feeling about this? Like Poppy has said, ESA is not based on the diagnosis. FND and NEAD are both real conditions- hope you continue to get the correct support :)
