I just placed a claim for ESA, based on Anxiety, which is rather coupled with my depression, if ones real bad the other is worse and so on.
But I'm nervous. At the moment, it feels like I'd never be able to manage getting, let alone keeping, a job. And everytime I've spoken to my parents, they tell me it doesn't matter if I don't like the job I'm doing, I gotta do it anyway. and occasionally I feel that low, so it's rather bloody important to me if I like what I'm doing.
I have panic attacks if I don't feel comfortable in situations, and I got whole hoard of other problems that don't help me out much.
I'm just terrified of being told to get over myself and knuckle down like everyone else. But they won't say that to me, will they? I'm terrified that if I keep going to my doctor and keep claiming ESA, they're going to turn round and tell me to grow up, it's about time I faced reality. It's only what I've been told before, when I was denied extra help at high school; because I wasn't blind, and I didn't use a wheel chair, clearly any problem I had was made up and I should stop attention seeking. I neved get the attention though :( I'm never entirely truthful when talking to people about myself.
Does anyone else claim ESA?? What is it like? What are the people generally like? Are they going to help me?
