Does anyone else claim ESA for their mental health issues? Do you get very anxious the day before you benefit is due to go in your bank? I do and worry it might not go in for some reason. It always does but I cannot shake the anxiety, fear and stress that comes the day before.

How do you cope with it if you suffer this?

Also there are a lot of scare stories in the media right now about the DWP monitoring you (social media , bank accounts etc) if you claim benefits. I try and stay away from these stories.
