Being placed within the ESA Benefits is stressful enough and a huge struggle anyway, then to be expected to participate in unknown Work Focused Activities and threatened that benefits will be sanctioned if not attending when too unwell is outrageous. Fluctuating conditions mean that if one is forced to go past limitations this will be detrimental to our health and exacerbate symptoms. Surely we have rights. Please could you let me know what is expected during the Work Focused Activities - It was recommended by the Tribunal that I not have a medical assessment for 2 years and apparently this can make a difference to what will be expected of me. Thank you I am very concerned about this and feel out of control on this as there may be no choices available to me.
