  2. Iv been on universal credit for a few months and I have mental problems, like anxiety and depression (also an eating disorder) and struggle to go outdoors (it heavily affects me with interviews) ( i do casual work here and ther like a few hours, but they take an absolute chunk out of it so hardly any point signing on in the first place) so I was wondering at my doctors appointment I have next week could I get a sick note so I could go on that for 3 months? Or is it very difficult? Just wanted advice : )
