Anyone here claim Esa?

I have suffered with depression/anxiety for the last 13 yrs. I have good times and bad times. Just when I think my life is getting back on track I end up in a bad way again.

I have been off work on long term sick. My employer has been really supportive. I need to go back to work tho I'm not sure I'm ready.

Financially I am screwed, I don't earn enough to get sickpay. :(

Try to push through and go to work, it actually works as a therapy keeping your mind busy an interacting with others


I have claimed ESA for 2 years now due to being unable to work because of my anxiety/panic/depression.
