What you have said hardly surprises me, I know a lot of people feign / exaggerate mental illness to get out of legal trouble. It is especially concerning that it seems to sometimes happen in cases of murder etc, and sometimes I think people totally get away with it.

The way you seem proud of deceiving people though, doesn't create a positive impression in my mind.

Yet more proof that Psychiatry in fact has more in common with Astrology than... say... Oncology. No offense to any psychiatrists who may be reading. Your "discipline" just requires a major lesson in scientific rigor :?


Or it might just be they don't know how to handle psychopaths; they don't even diagnose psychopathy anymore.

That's all we need a psychopath/ASPD piloting an airplane. I can see if events don't go right in your life at some point and you decide in a final act to make your statement and being sick of society to use your airplane as part of your solution for the "up yours message to society." :?

You are a slap in the face to people who actually have bipolar and the hell they go through. I have no respect for you. What goes around, comes around. You may think you pulled one over on them now. I would not be surprised to find out it comes back around to bite you in the a$$ in the end.

1. One of the best threads I've ever read.

2. I don't believe a word of your story.

3. Science told me that all practicing psychiatrists are sociopaths. Science said the same thing about lawyers, police, and prison inmates.

4. Good job crowd sourcing.

Could you discuss more detail of some things that you did or tell us some symptoms you were telling them?

For example the hallucinations you were having or delusions? How would you act or do the role play and did people outside of the medical profession believe this as well? How would you go through the hospitalizations required for this diagnosis.

How much research did you put into the medications? So many can be tested in the blood. Also, the co-morbidities which come with schizophrenia but it sounds like you know a lot about this topic. How would you fake the deteriorating condition such as staying in bed often for example? The weight gain with the antipsychotics you would have definitely needed to fake if you were not taking the medicine. Or were you not at that level of this disease?

This is such an interesting story. Would you share more with us?

I have seen and been told about #3 by my own psychiatrist. Positions of power or someone doing a scheme to get money. I shouldn't have really encouraged more details but if the story is plausible at all I'd like to hear the details of this. Go into a doctor appointment with 1 article and in less than a week a psychiatrist goes "you're right!" "Eureka! We never thought of that in your differential diagnosis nor in all the lab testing which is required in medication management of bipolar disorder and checking for substance abuse and monitor vitals we never caught it." Did the psychiatrist take a picture of you with his arm around you and a ribbon with a medal stating "best patient ever" on that? Or hold the trophy?

They do know how to deal with a psycho/socio path in that they said you are right, good bye.

You are faking FD disorder. I am laughing so, so hard and this was dope. It would be great to get detail so that we can all better understand the how. You are talking to many of us that do this for a living, right? Stories to come clean are welcome and in fact encouraged so we can get better and have enlightenment.

With a pilot's license it isn't that easy. You have had it on your record. Now you need to go for a flight physical and actually get through ground school and then to be FFD.

Well put, wow. I thought that it was just me, that could this person actually be faking an FD????

What for? Well, depends on the serious nature of the legal charges. And what they would do to you if (when) you do wind up in prison.

There could be an underlying bipolar, but wait, oh, that's right, "now completely recovered."
Funny how that works, and when bipolar disorder usually gets worse over time, not better?????

I am the last person to diagnose this, certainly.

Except to say, "yeah, right."

Given it would appear that an FD, depending on the charges, is still not a defense, in the one case that I saw, with respect to trying to use it as a defense, it did not work, it wasn't a defense for murder in this case. My advice, is to if you can help it, don't repeat that one, lightening never strikes twice in the same place. Next time, and my guess from the sound of it, is you won't be so lucky.

Of 'notmike' and 'nerdman' are you the same person?

The content of these posts is pretty much the same too!

Just an observation.

At least one hacker, maybe?
