I just wanted to point out something that has been on my mind from the beginning of this whole saga, and we should not lose sight of: mental illness does not ONLY affect good, kind-hearted people. It does not discriminate. Someone who was not a very nice person to begin with, does not suddenly become a lovely, misunderstood angel just because they have mental health issues.
Just my two pennies.

You are obviously unwell and this is a very stressful situation for you and your sisters. Please take that leap of faith and go and register/see a GP. Tell the GP that your online friends say that you are
finding it difficult to make rational decisions
possibly increasing solicitor's fees because of a constant need for clarification due to your thought processing issues
finding it increasingly difficult to trust people and evaluate advice/increase in potentially paranoid thoughts
finding it very difficult to de-stress so you are you seem constantly on edge
head is constantly thinking and you are unable to switch them off
beginning to alienate online friends with your behaviour as it makes people feel you are unwilling to be helped when you are potentially too poorly to untangle your thoughts without professional help
(If anyone else wants to add anything useful, please feel free).
Ann, I have tried to be careful with my wording, and I really don't mean to upset you with any of it. Please do see a GP.
Does it even occur to you that your behaviour could actually have contributed to your sister becoming so ill that she has had to be detained in hospital?
Of course the national health service has sufficient resources to keep your sister in hospital in order that she does not pay you your legal rights but does not have enough resources to keep on a mental health worker who could support you - do you really believe this?

No empathy for siblings, one who also has MH illness.
Please with Asperger's Syndrome have issues with empathy.

Yes I want to tell my Ex-CMHT social worker of this Hell I am going though.
She is the only one that knows about mum's will.
But I still don't think the CMHT will take me back.
They will just say that my mental state is more of a social problem being caused by the anxiety of getting my inheritace.
The same as they said when my ESA was reviewed last year and they refused to take me back.
I think it's nonsense as this IS effecting my MH and I do need emotional support.
That is someone I can talk to who can help me get through this.
As I sure as Hell am not getting it from my Solicitor.
He has no understanding of MH problems.
Annbarbs - the NHS and DWP are two different things.
The DWP cannot stop making payments to you if you do not have the money.
Your NHS CMHT cannot give the DWP false information.
The DWP DOES NOT intercept emails going to the NHS.
Your solicitor IS helping you, but as you know, there is nothing more to be done at present.
TO DO LIST:
GO AND REGISTER WITH A GP
Stop making excuses
Contact your CMHT Social Worker

p.s. I understand that because of your Asperger's Syndrome you see things differently, but PLEASE do things differently in order to help yourself.
