I've been on ESA for nearly a year. I went for my assessment and received the dreaded brown envelope today. Basically they're saying that I have the potential to go back to work. I'm really worried because I can barely manage to take care of myself. I also found out that I can only receive contribution based ESA for 12 months. What happens after the 12 months? Will they stop my benefits? I have Fibro, CFS, Endometriosis stage 4, bowel issues (resulting from a bowel resection, ileostomy and reversal). I Suffer from chronic depression and generalised anxiety disorder. I'm divorced, I live alone and have no family around. My mobility is limited so I can't use public transport. I'm really worried about how I'm going to manage. Will I have to go through the whole lengthy ESA application again? Any advise would be very helpful. Thanks
