Got my ESA appeal decision today following hearing on Weds, lost my appeal as they reckon they couldn't award enough points to overrule DWP decision. Got to give written request to get a statement of reasons which could take at least 4-6 weeks. Only option now is to reapply as I can't live on sweet fa. What the hell may as well try DLA too, nothing more to lose. Was counting on the backdated money to pay off my car expenses (insurance etc) on my credit card as the assessment rate didn't cover them. I hate owing money, so together with the fact I now have no money coming in I feel really down. Good job I have a few good friends and family or life would not be worth living right now, but I guess that's what the government want, us all to just disappear so they don't have the problem xx
