So... What now???

My work coach was supposed to call me an hour and twenty five minutes ago... I got no call - and I can't log in to the government's website to find out if she's rebooked me or not.

I happen to know that I'm always her last client of the day because she has to pick her son up from school. Obviously, school is still going to kick out at the same time.

I don't know whether to carry on waiting for the call or just give up and accept that she's not going to call me as scheduled today.

Moreover, I'm also worried because I know that she can sanction me for missing these calls. I don't really want to have to wait until the close of office today to see if anyone at all will contact me because I have other things that I need to call people about - but I don't see what other option I have left to me now. If I miss this call, they will just stop my money.

Surely they can’t sanction you if she didn’t ring you like she was supposed to?

[@15534,TopOfTheWorld] Welcome to the life of being stuck in the DWP cycle in 2021...

I'm dreading lockdown ending before I get my diagnosis because I know that the pressure to find work will be back on me once again. As much as I want to work, I'm not going to cause myself or anyone else an injury or death just to do so.
[@421598,Becksta] I watched I, Daniel Blake and that was certainly enough to make me glad my dole days are long behind me.

[@15534,TopOfTheWorld] Woohoo... I'm not going to be sanctioned - she confirmed what I thought.

The system was down... including the back end, so I guess that they couldn't work like that.
