On being sane in insane places

I do not think Dr RB John ever really considered the far reaching effects of his lies in that Medical Opinion. However I do  believe that he KNEW that once he had labelled me as a psychiatric patient that I would have absolutely NO CHANCE of that stigma being removed. This was his “safeguard”, his ticket to being shown to be exemplary. This was why he refused to answer the NHS Complaint in a true and professional manner.  I label him, from the written evidence I have, as being a pathological liar and a totally dishonest man. This diagnosis is however NOT A FALSEHOOD, evidence exists, in writing AND in my Medical Notes to prove so. I also do not have to make it up as it IS in writing, on headed notepaper. NHS Wales have shown THEIR complicity as they consistently deny the truth.

My sister Dr KE James’ attitude, where she intentionally allowed Dr RB John to falsely diagnose her brother as having a Mental Illness, shows that she too relies on the stigma of mental illness being immovable, once in place. She has something serious that she wishes to remain secret, something that she was SO desperate to conceal that she too intentionally destroys her brother to achieve her aims.

BUT Dr RB John did not expect me to continue fighting for resolution for THIRTEEN YEARS. Because at 11.30 today, 13 years ago, I was labelled as insane. On Thursday June 11th 1998 at 11.30 I received that telephone call

4745 days because Dr RB John NEEDS to show himself to be “a man of upstanding character”, a trait that he does NOT possess as I was part of the web of deceit he wove to enable him to be made High Sheriff of West Glamorgan, 2009 to 2010. 

My appearance on Britain’s Got Talent 2010 has however had an effect that was above and beyond the published outcome of those 2 minutes on TV.

But I still wish to kill myself rather than have the NHS do it for me AND I intend to bring Dr RB John down with me, before I die.

===================

The Rosenhan experiment was a famous experiment into the validity of psychiatric diagnosis conducted by psychologist David Rosenhan in 1973. It was published in the journal Science under the title “On being sane in insane places.”[1] The study is considered an important and influential criticism of psychiatric diagnosis.[2]

Rosenhan’s study consisted of two parts. The first part involved the use of healthy associates or “pseudopatients” who briefly simulated auditory hallucinations in an attempt to gain admission to 12 different psychiatric hospitals in five different states in various locations in the United States. All were admitted and diagnosed with psychiatric disorders. After admission, the pseudopatients acted normally and told staff that they felt fine and had not experienced any more hallucinations. Hospital staff failed to detect a single pseudopatient, and instead believed that all of the pseudopatients exhibited symptoms of ongoing mental illness.

Several were confined for months. All were forced to admit to having a mental illness and agree to take antipsychotic drugs as a condition of their release.

The second part involved asking staff at a psychiatric hospital to detect non-existent “fake” patients. The staff falsely identified large numbers of genuine patients as impostors.

The study concluded, “It is clear that we cannot distinguish the sane from the insane in psychiatric hospitals” and also illustrated the dangers of depersonalization and labeling in psychiatric institutions. It suggested that the use of community mental health facilities which concentrated on specific problems and behaviors rather than psychiatric labels might be a solution and recommended education to make psychiatric workers more aware of the social psychology of their facilities.

mental illness is perceived as an irreversible condition creating a lifelong stigma rather than a curable illness.
