Made a mistake not understanding what WCA was

long story short... I answered questions thinking if I didn't say I was more capable than I am they would stop giving me UC. I am terrible and always never sure when it comes to understanding anything from UC out of fear I would get told "we cant give you UC unless you do something" My anxiety over that made me answer they questions in a way that wasn't a true reflection on how I cope daily.

    You were given advice in your other thread about what you need to convey
    https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/87834/is-there-any-information-that-the-dwp-would-accept-that-i-could-request-from-my-doctor#latest
    Did you get the advice from an agency that was mentioned in that thread?

    You were also given advice in this thread
    https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/87748/i-need-help-understanding-going-from-lcw-lcwra#latest

    If you keep starting new threads it reads it makes it more more difficult for people to advise you because we repeat ourselves and/or lose track of your situation.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    I'm sure it happens to a lot of people. Google is your best friend and there's lot of information available.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi there 

    There is no need to delete your account and your queries will also help others so they are valid on the forum 

    However if you do want posts or your account deleting you need to email community@scope.org.uk

    I'm sorry for making it seem I post to much and seemingly all over the place. Sometimes I just have a question and never posted on forum until recently... Maybe a discord for real time chats would be an option

    If it is my post that caused you to think that - that wasn't my intention. I just wanted to let you know that it is easier for others to offer advice if you keep similar queries in the one thread (but there's no rule that says you have to).

    If you are seeking specific advice it can make it easier if you keep all your questions on the subject to one thread, however there are no rules that say you have to do this and it does happen a lot so please don't worry about it, just enjoy the forum. @Gcloud

    Thank you. A lot of the time when reading things I often feel like I'm being spoken down to as I just don't know thing an have trouble trying to explain in a way that makes sense.

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I gave you a lot of advice on a previous thread and spent a lot of my time trying my best to explain things to you. A lot of people here spend their time freely helping an advising others.
    It is often very difficult to read the tone of text speak and i certainly didn't speak down to you, far from it and i'm sorry if you thought i did.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
