Just be positive mate need to talk we are here sooo many reasons to be positive not that many to be negativeI hope you and your sister finds her own peace of mind mate. Appreciate the offer. The forums have been a great help already to me.
That’s a very dangerous thought.Thanks for all the well wishing. Like I say, I don't think I was ever ill so thoughts with those who are more severely impaired than me.
Just a relief more than anything and another chapter to put behind me.
I understand now. 'Delusional disorder' was the diagnosis. I'm told by more recent psychiatrists that my 'fixed beliefs' about what happened are a common symptom of delusional disorder... but there is no admittance that it was actually MI5 that issued the warrant.Thinking you were never I’ll mate.
You admit to having being arrested by the countries security service, being sectioned and receiving professional care.
But don’t think somethings amiss.
Very true mate, there's a lot of people still out there that will look down and mistrust anyone diagnosed with mental health problems but I've always thought of myself as being compassionate in that respect.Good luck, I reduced my dosages slowly, and now take a very mild one. If that’s an option it might be worth considering. It just shows how far we’ve come, that mental health is now talked about rather than the stigmatisation that it once carried.
I won’t be sending in any more letters to ‘The Suffolk Gazette’I understand now. 'Delusional disorder' was the diagnosis. I'm told by more recent psychiatrists that my 'fixed beliefs' about what happened are a common symptom of delusional disorder... but there is no admittance that it was actually MI5 that issued the warrant.
The process of being sectioned was very brief. Basically I had a knock on the door from police. The first thing I said was...
"This will be intelligence based"
"What do you mean?" They asked.
"The security services and MI5" was my reply.
I was taken to a police station and put in a cell. Then a few hours later called out to be interviewed by someone I thought was police, later turned out to be a mental health assessment team. I told them the same thing, that I knew MI5 were behind my arrest.
A few hours later I was taken out of the cell and told I was going to hospital. An ambulance came and took me to hospital where I was interviewed by a psychiatrist. He asked me why I thought I was there. I told him "I've sent malicious communications to an online newspaper and I believe MI5 have given intelligence leading to my arrest".
The interview took around 5 minutes and I should say at this point I had no firm indication that it actually was MI5 behind my arrest other than what had happened to me for the last 3 years.
I was told to sleep in the hospital. Other people were in there for similar reasons, some clearly very ill, but just as many others that had sent malicious communications, including one chap who'd sent a letter to the Queen.
I was detained for a month on the basis of a few 5 minute at most interviews with a psychiatrist. At no point did I feel like I'd been heard out, and was sectioned purely on the basis I said it was MI5.
This is the crux of the story though... on my release from hospital I had an interview with another psychiatrist who'd seen my arrest warrant. He told me it was issued by JTRIG (I'd never really heard of them) and he said himself it seemed suspicious.
I went home and googled JTRIG and it matched what had been going on to me on the internet.
When I was later questioned by police it was the same officer who knocked on my door. He admitted that the first thing I'd said to him was 'intelligence based' and that it was in fact MI5/JTRIG that issued the warrant. And so he let me off with a conditional caution.
It seems that simply implying that I was targeted by MI5 was enough to get me sectioned, which is understandable, but it turned out, as I found out after the fact... to be 100% true.
Sorry for rambling but that is in fact a long story short.
Just read this - you may be interestedIf anyone wants to know how to come to the attention of JTRIG in the first place, I would/wouldn't recommend coming forward to the Mail Online with 'information' about something that might or might not have happened on a once popular film forum, at the same time as trolling their comments section with 'subversive' comments. They take themselves way too seriously as a paper and ruined my life for 3 years.
