Hello there...

My story is a bit long winded but I will try and make this as brief and descriptive as I can.

I have been on ESA since July. For the past year I have been suffering from severe depression, acute panic/anxiety attacks and self harm etc. I have been working ever since the age of 16 and only in July I had to give up work because my conditions were just getting worse. I am under the care of my GP, community mental health team and counsellor.

After being on ESA for a few months I was sent an appointment for a medical with ATOS. I have just heard today that I failed my assessment. I find this really awful as there is no way I could go back to work at the moment. My attacks are so bad that I black out, I can barely find the energy to feed myself let alone leave the house. I have a fear of leaving the house on my own and feel everything is getting me down. I cry most days and feel like life isnt worth living. I hear voices at night so much so that I am scared to sleep. I am getting help now but things are still really bad. My medical was conducted by a nurse. She asked me questions for 10 minutes and then that was it. Today I was told that I scored 0 points! My GP has continued to give me a medical certiciate signing me unfit for work until end of November and she has said that she expects that to continue for some months ahead until I reieve an assessment from the physctherist. They have stopped all of my money and told me that i need to appeal. My state of mind is bad but they asked me to fill in the appeals form at the job centre which i did....

I also applied for DLA a couple of months ago but havent heard anything.

I am living at home with my mum at the moment but she wants me to leave as she cant deal with my mental health state also because I am gay she cant deal with my way of life.

I am going to have no where to live. The council refused to help me find somewhere and said that i have to rent privately... !!! With what money? even if i claimed housing benefit i cant no way find a depsoit or first months rent in advance

I am so scared and feels everything is on top of me...
