hi, I've just gone with a friend to her ESA assessment, and I feel really angry on her behalf, got the impression that the doctor had already decided not to put her in the support group before the assessment began. No understanding of either learning disabilities or mental health issues, it all seems so stupid, the reality that s my friend will never get another job, she has really limited ability to work, each time she had to go to the job centre she gets distressed for a week before, even though the current advisor there is good, she's had such bad experiences before, there's a whole list of stuff, learning remembering, coping with change, climbing stairs, walking, that she either can't do, or only with great difficulty, even round here where people are desperate for staff no one would employ her, and her physical health is so poor she couldn't manage more than an hour or two a week anyway! And yet she still has to go to the job centre, and do work related activities, it's all a farce, plus she'll be using resources that could be helping another disabled person who has a chance of getting into work.
i feel so frustrated, and upset on her behalf.
