I'm in the work related support group for ESA and they are trying to force me to do certain activities speaking in front of others despite my serious social anxieties.
I've resisted them so far because it just makes me upset. But I don't want to be sanctioned yet I don't see why I should be forced to do something which makes me anxious. Ive complied with all Other activities so far they so they know I'm not taking the Mick.
So I saw my GP today and she's given me a sick note to give to DWP to try and exclude me for one month from this social activities. Sounds funny giving a sick note to them I know.
I am just wondering if anyone else has had success giving them a sick note to be excluded from certain work related activities?
