The text back and reallocation

Well got a text back from CC saying

I'm sorry to hear you feel that way. I will get you reallocated next week. I wish you well.

AArrghh- I don't want another worker. I would rather have no CC

Anyway Welfare rights rang and going to see them about the whole ESA thing tommorow. Mum is coming for support.

I haven't slept at all for last three nights. And feeling pretty spaced out..

I'm the last person to give advice on sleep but you need to get some, no matter what it takes. I know what it's like to go for 3 days without, by which time I'm usually going out of my mind. Take a sedative if you have any. Even a groggy sleep is better than none at all.
When you feel more rested, couldn't you call your CC back and talk the situation over and maybe consider getting her back (on your terms if possible)? I'm a fine one to talk, but it does sound like you could do with a bit of support right now.
Good luck with the welfare-rights people. I hope you get this ESA crap sorted and wrapped up for good. It makes me really angry, the stress they're causing so many people who genuinely need that bit of extra help. Things are rough right now but it won't be like this for ever. Hang in there and try and get some rest.

I am really suprised that your CC has just accepted your text and is reallocating you, without having even spoken to you. That doesn't seem very good - I feel like she should have at least called you to discuss why you are feeling like that and seen if she could have done anything to change your mind rather than just accepting it. I think that it is outrageous that she tells your mum everything though. Yes, there are cases where confidentiality can be broken if they are concerned about your safety, but it sounds like she is telling your mum about things after they have happened, which would make it seem like it isn't out of concern for your safety, in which case it is surely just breaking confidentiality inappropriately? I don't know the legalities of it, but I was suprised when reading your post.

Maybe it would be worth trying a different CC? It seems like although you like your current CC, there are issues in your relationship - starting with someone new may not be such a bad thing? Or alternatively maybe try and talk to her about your concerns? It sounds like you could do with keeping the support of having a CC, but you need to be able to be honest with them without knowing that everything you say is going to end up being told to your mum.
