Please calm my nerves! (ESA)
Hello, I am in the support group and have been for a few years now and in Jan I got yet another ESA50 which I filled in and sent back. I fully expected to be called for a medical as I always am (and twice they stopped my money and it went to tribunal which I thankfully won)
I recently got a letter that they are going to call me next thursday for a phone assessment. I'm normally a shaking/bundle of nerves at the medicals but this has me even more worried as I hate using the phone. I get muddled and start to panic. also if they are using the phone then they can't see me face to face and see how bad I am so I'm getting very stressed over this and barely slept even an hour straight last night.
anyone done one of these? any tips on how to do it withing going into a total anxious panic?
