Stephanie says, “I won my tribunal after 14 months of battling and stress. I have post-traumatic stress disorder after being raped in my 20s by my father, and I have had to re-live the whole ordeal over and over. I am still awaiting my ESA to be reinstated. The DWP say they haven’t been notified of the outcome by Atos. I have spent the entire weekend distressed, as I am now unsure if my benefits have been suspended, upset by the telephone questions asked at the assessment, and also worried that if they have suspended my ESA without informing me, my Housing Benefit and Council Tax will also be affected and I will be evicted. How could this be happening? I am totally confused and cannot make sense of it. The additional stress is seriously affecting my ability to function with day-to-day tasks. I feel lost and completely alone and isolated.”
