Hello,
I received dreaded ESA50 form today, I am currently in the support group ( and with the help of your guides, my last medical assessment was 4years ago)
I suffer with depression, anxiety self harming,panic attacks which has been made worse since nov 2018, as I lost my dad :( The GP said I also suffering with PTSD, as I get constant flashbacks on when my dad was in ICU which than leads to panic attacks and suicidal thoughts.
I have so much fear filling out this form, any advice would be helpful.

MAke a plan for dealing with the form, you don't need to fill it in in one session, break it down into manageable junks, maybe one question a day, choose the ones that are most important to you and answer those first.

If you are going to write on the form try and make some notes first so you know what to say.

Use the guide, they not only explain what the criteria is but also explain how to answer the questions.

If you have any specific questions then please reply to this post and I will do my best to help.
