I wouldn't have said your condition do not matter, but ESA is a functional assessment of your ability to complete a number of activities, so it is the limitations that result from your conditions that are being assessed not the conditions themselves.

Two claimants could have exactly the same conditions but be limited in very different ways!

Have you read our ESA Claim guides?
