Sandra, I was diagnosed as a terrible case in 1980/81 with guarded prognosis in Ireland, due to a fairly obviously inaccurate account of me coming from England. In the next few years I had suicidal hospitalization after suicidal hospitalization culminating in 1984 when I was judged to be absolutely hopeless. Then I came off the drugs very carefully, engaged in community psychotherapy and have remained well since. When I was leaving Ireland in 1986 I collected some references from people that had known me over the years. In contradiction to my psychiatric records these references were very positive.
