Lemonzest so sorry you have been put through such a hard time, I think you need to speak to someone who can help you through the benefit minefield, have you appealed the decision??? get your doc to write a letter explaining how the stress of your situation is making your condition worse and that you aren't fit enough to attend any courses at present

I dont know, think you will have to wait for the apppeal to be over before you can put in another claim but you can still get sick notes (fit notes) from your doc which should mean they cant bully you into going on courses etc.

Please dont let them grind you down lemonzest can you speak to your solicitor :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: you cant let things carry on getting you so upset. Have you got a family member or best friend you can talk to about it just to unburden.

I know JS have to try to make sure people are adhering to the rules but its not acceptable to make people such as yourself feel so bad and cause so much worry and upset. sending you some gentle :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: and wish I could do more for you

So sorry you are feeling so bad LZ, this "thing" can be bad enough without having all the hassle of courses etc. Have a chat with your solicitor or a benefits advisor and see if there is anything else you can do to ease the stress of your current situation , as we all know stress can play a big part in how we feel .....so in a way the JSA/ESA folk are being counterproductive.... as the more they yell at you the less you will probably be able to cope .

Hope you find a light at the end of the tunnel

I thought if your on ESA appeal you get a reduced amount which is roughly same as JSA until your decision has been made and if you win then any amounts owing will be paid and if not you can reclaim and again end up on reduced rate.

I think them putting you on JSA is like a trap, anything to get people off the sick payements! :nono:

yet again your best bet is seeing a benefits advisor

:goodluck1:
