okay girls (and guys) I'm just looking for some confirmation re my actions lately..
short history.. ex has a history of some sort of mental illness (personality disorder, compulsing lying and other such things and also depression and post traumatic stress from child abuse as a child he had...least this is what he says).
3 weeks ago ex rang me all week every day with weird things on and off.. just lies and strange stories (he was going to move next door.. then he wasn't, he had a lot of money to give, then he wanted to cut child support.. random weird stuff) which I logged in my diary. He stopped seeing the children at his twice weekly visits (consent ordered) and emailed me saying he only wanted to see them on the weekend (he has one consent order visit to see them on the weekend).
the same week all the calls 3 weeks ago he rang late one night to tell me he had been sectioned in a mental hospital (turns out that was a lie apprently), and had tried to kill himself 3 weeks prior to that (lie? not sure) and was in a 'safe house' for self harm and was being watched 24/7 (this also turned out to be a lie). As a result (before I knew they were lies) my solicitor said I needed letters from his doctors to say what was going on but until then we should only have supervised visits. rang legal aid and they also backed this up. cost me $350 for the solicitor's letter
at first he refused supervised visits but then realised he had to do it.. he kept saying he's got a solicitor (lie) and he has the letters (possible other lie).. he's rung and rung but I'm not answering calls from him as he's aggressive.. I have been responding via email and he's going nuts I'm screening my call has he likes to call any time day or night and annoy me - it's killing him to not be able to 'have a go at me' any time he likes on the telphone!
anyway... he's had two visits at my place on a sunday for 2 hours each.. still no sign of letters, no news... nothing. I'm assuming it may not happen and I'm thinking he assumes I'll just drop the matter but a) there is still no evidence of his mental health or what drugs he's on b) it cost me $350 and caused a lot of upset at my end re his phone call to say he'd been sectioned - so what to do.. stick it out and force him to produce the letters? I feel that's what I should do and feel that if I don't stick to this it will come back to bite me later when he does it again.. also he's still emailing random weird stuff and it's a bit aggressive (nothing as such just a nasty tone and lots of emails) which confirm my belief he's mentally unstable. any advice?
