You're very right. I'm starting to worry that i will be unemployed if i cant face work after all the stress n anxiety im feeling.

It`s about time these long term sick are re checked, not all of them are sick, they can get more money being out of work than in, if the benefits were cut everyone will be clambering for a job.
