I have suffered with depression since I was 15 when I had my 1st child. I had a few major issues going on from my earlier youth but gradually I had periods of good days and this went on throughout my life. A few times I was admitted to hospital and was involved with the crisis team. I was getting threw each day feeling better some days and Some days I wouldn't even get out of bed, it wasn't unusual for me to go to the local chemist for My daily medication in my pyjamas. Then 3 years ago my youngest Son who was 13 year old was being bullied and found it so hard to deal with he took his own life which has had a massive impact on my mental health state so much so that I never opened letters or got dressed I refused to eat. I was a mess. Around my Sons 16th birthday I was due for a medical and I ended up missing the appointment as I misplaced the letter that my daughter opened and we did try to find out when it was for unfortunately I had missed the appointment and had to give an explanation why. I then received a letter to say I would still receive my benefits as before this was in July 2016 and in September 2016 my claim was closed and I had to apply for a mandatory reconsideration which I was refused. So I asked for someone at a church to help me so they went and spoke to the management who said they would overturn the decision, after many phone calls I finally got my decision which was no change so now I am still with out money, so I don't have any heating or hot water and I have to go to a tribunal which I have no idea what to do can anyone help?
