I'm a new member who is very confused and in need of some help if possible
I was signed off sick in 2015 with Anxiety & Depression with the cause given as PTSD
I claimed esa for approx 6 mths then attended the medical which found me "fit to work" so the esa stopped and i was placed on jsa
Although my GP, PTSD therapist and my mental health advisor/support worker all disagreed i am ashamed to say i didn't dispute the ruling ( too stressful and i thought i was being treated like a liar) and have for the past 8 mths have been struggling to find work/ attend support grps & interviews whilst trying to at least manage my condition.
Whilst i have made some improvement the anxiety / panic attacks associated with the PTSD are still very much the main factor of my day to day life and still affect whatever i do
I am having several attacks daily and am starting to feel unwell again
Can i go back on esa as my gp wants to sign me off again with exactly the same condition?
Thank you in advance for any help & advice you feel able to give
