Hello,can anyone offer advice please.
I was upto about 2 months ago claiming ESA,i hadn't been claiming for long about 6 weeks i believe,along with housing benefit.
Anyway i had a severe attack of anxiety and it caused me,against my wifes and families wishes,to contact the ESA and HB people and stop my claim.I told them i wanted to go back to work.I worked self employed as a decorative sign writer.
However,i now know i have made a terrible mistake.I just cannot work enough and regulary enough to earn an income.The whole process of working is crippling me,i was warned about these effects because of my condition by the chronic pain management team and mental health unit.My life mentally is back to near suicidal thoughts again,i tried once before and couldn't even get that right.I have let everyone down,all those people both family and medical teams who were making my life more bearable,i have let them all down.
Now though i think i have a problem,because other than the doctors and future referalls,i have stopped seeing the pain management and psychologists,i also told them i wasn't attending anymore,so they signed me off.Oh dear what have i done,all this was really because of a severe anxiety attack that i didn't want to tell anyone about.
Now i have no income at all,the kids are helping me and the wife financially,but i just really need to find out will i be able to reapply for ESA,i wasn't assessed before.
Housing benefit should be ok,but i need financial and medical help again.
