I've been here less than 24 hours and someone called me dumb.

Scope, what's that about? A disability charity. Is being dumb a disability?
That's ironic.
Will I return for day 2? That's unlikely.
I can't deal with toxic people it stresses me out
Thank you for stressing me out Scope site.

    I hope you're doing a bit better today. Would you like to tell us a bit about yourself?

    I'm 62 been through the ESA and PIP grinder over the past 4 years, currently preparing for a 3rd appeal for Pip after 2 years 4 months. Had a Heart attack 4 weeks ago and have been isolating since early March, I had a tribunal on 4th March and was awarded standard daily living plus SDP. I received a considerable backdated award the same day that the lockdown striated, so it's all been very weird. Currently examining the likelihood of being able to gain enough points for enhanced daily living and a mobility award at either level.
    I belong to several groups like this and often try to help people who are panicking due to being exposed to the complex benefit system without much experience.

    The "functionality" to ignore posters is to leave a group where bad attitude festers and is fostered. That's scope done for me.
