Hello This is my first post so please bare with me.
I was awarded Esa approx 6 months ago after a fight appeal and tribunal, i was also awarded Pip after a face to face assesment which was horrific for me i cried and shaked my way through it. I suffer with extreme anxiety and depression it has not been given a proper name but i think its more a social phobia and possibly PTSD but im know doctor. Anyway i am in the wrag group and i have recently had a letter from job centre asking me to attend interview i wrote to them with a copy of my tribunal letter where it states i have difficulty going out and dealing with people and strangers it causes me extreme anxiety. Well the lady from local jc called me and was a little rude in my opinion telling me i have to attend as the letter only says i have difficulty going out and not that i cant go out, i proceeded to have a panic attack while trying to talk toher on the phone she eventually said she would leave me until feb but i must make the effort to get better as i have to attend.
my question is can i ask to go in to support group and being awarded pip would that count as additional evidence to help change my group also i have hypothyroidism which i have never used in my claim would that help. I hope that makes sence and thankyou in advance xx
