I have been on sick on and off for a long time. I have always just seen my GP and got sick notes for anxiety. I went to see a psychological practitioner from the nhs, who told me I have post traumatic stress disorder.
For me it is very bad and effects my life totally, to the point were I cannot function properly. It is caused by physical abuse as a child and long periods of being bullied.
I do not go out very much at all, only if i really have to. I do not sleep much at all, with no regular pattern, just anytime day or night. I have hyper vigilance, and do not trust no one anymore, not even my family members.
I have just applied for ESA and was wondering how my claim will go, if there are any other things i can claim, and some advice for if and when i have to have a assessment by the social security.
I don't think my condition is going to change over the long term, it has been going on so long now, i just deal with it as i can.
Thanks for any replies/advice in advance.
