Hi, I'm here to ask advice for anyone who is on PIP or ESA.
My father was diagnosed with Cirrhosis 3 years ago, but also has mental health/ect problems. Recently he went for a medical and was kicked off his ESA/ect because he's well enough to work, which is wrong. (in the letter it didn't even state his cirrhosis.)
I'm my dads carer, I don't get paid for it, but I do everything for him, Finances/cleaning/shopping/ect.
He's currently doing an appeal for this decision.
In the last two years, he's been in and out of hospital, he gets scans every 3/5 months, he's always feeling ill, being sick, bringing up bile everyday. He doesn't eat apart from some cold meat in the afternoon and before he goes to bed. He can't wash, walk for more than 5 minutes without sweating and feeling like he's about to faint. His memory is very bad, I can tell him one thing and ten minutes later, I'll say it again and he reacts like I haven't told him before.
I'm very worried about his conditions, especially due to him not having any money now, and I'm scared that he won't be accepted for ESA/ect. I'm just wondering if there's anyone on here thats had any issues and if there's any advice as to what evidence or such I can use/ect to help him because I'd class him as disabled, especially due to me being his carer. Im very unwell myself and I'm running ragged trying to sort things and keep him as calm as possible (his mental health is terrible) and I just...I feel hopeless right now.
