First of all thankyou all for the replys.
I myself have not been diagnosed but my brother (D) was.
From a young age he was different, really quiet, shy, lack of confidence, OCD and tics,etc..
As he grew older, age 8/9 he wouldnt play with friends after school, used to make up excuses and even send my mum to door for him. On the odd occasion he would play with friends but only on his computer games. (Xbox etc..) this was his only real interest.
We believed he was agrophobic, my mum never took him to the GP as she was exactly the same from a youngage so thought this was normal behaviour.
At age 18 D stated seeing someone from EIT as he couldnt maintain a job due to his agrophobic state.
At this point he became interested in politics, and said to his worker that when he was 70 and in an old peoples home that he may commit a terrorist attack.
EIT contacted police and D was sectioned immediately!
D was always very childish and had a strange sense of humour.
D was sedated, diagnosed schizophrenia, then was forced antipsychotic drugs. within days after he was hallucinating and hearing voices, even more so if he skipped a day of medication, he never suffered these symptoms until the medication started!
After months of to and fro'in from the unit, D was more depressed, especially as he was people phobic and was being forced to socialise with staff/patients.his medication was been swapped and changed due to his side effects, he wasnt himself anymore.
In the end D said to staff that if he was not discharged at his next formal meeting that he would escape and lay on the railway tracks.. Unfortunately staff did not believe his threats so D did just that.
At D's inquest it was mentioned by doctor that he was been assessed for aspergers 2 weeks before he died.
Me and my mum have looked this up and can not believe how nearly every symptom is D, spot on!
We have also looked back at home vid's and noticed even more symptoms. coordination. etc..always asking to go home on every video clip. we have now notified our solicitor who is looking deeper in to this,
