  • Hi it could be worth appealing as you wouldn't have to go back if you didn't want to, and you might get a payout from them.

    Have you seen the doctor about how you are feeling? Are you on any meds? Or seeing a counsellor? Maybe for the time being you could ask your doctor for a sick note so you can have a breathing space to hopefully get yourself sorted. x

  • Have appealed. They didnt take the depression into account at all. Not been in the job since August. was suspended. thanks for your care. I am on sertralene
