Passed ESA medical AGAIN second time i was wondering DLA??
Hi, I have passed my ESA medical for the second time for severe depression and anxiety. I have been told to apply for DLA aswell due to care and getting around the reason for this is as follows.
I have been with my partner for 5years and she has supported me through these hard times which i am truly lucky to have been given a partner like her. She is a carer at the moment going house to house looking after people. When she is off work or even when she is at work if i need anything i call her and she will take me places i need to go due to myself been paranoid to go outside.
She helps with a number of things ranging from taking me shopping, cooking meals, cleaning up and reminding me to do things when i forget aswell as cleaning my clothes.
I also get support of my mother alot when she is not around. I was wondering would i be able to get DLA as i have been on ESA for over 3years. I am currently in the WRAG group and have to attend interviews but my support worker is very helpful so i arrange times and can cancel times due to my partner having to accompany me to interviews.
Thanks and hope to get some help on this.
