Subject: victim of organized crime
To the Washington Psychiatric Society:
I believe I am the victim of organized crime. Specifically, I believe I have been stalked by the attorney managers of the law firm of Akin Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld continuously since late October 1991. The firm had The George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry certify me insane during my out-patient treatment at GW from 1992-1996. There is objective evidence that clinical assessments made by GW about me were self-serving, ridiculous, and without any foundation.
I have been continuously unemployed and disabled since October 29, 1991, when my former employer, Akin Gump, fired me for mental health reasons. I have been receiving Social Security Disability continuously since my job termination.
I have communicated my concerns numerous times to the Washington Field Office of the FBI. The FBI refuses to investigate because I have no concrete evidence that any crime has been committed.
I am currently in weekly psychotherapy with a third-year psychiatry resident named Jitendra Annapareddy, M.D. who is affiliated with St. Elizabeths Hospital. Dr. Annapareddy's supervisor is Earle Baughman, M.D. at St. Elizabeths. Dr. Baughman is a psychiatrist/psychoanalyst.
I derive no benefit from my work with psychiatry residents. None of the residents I have seen since 1992 has had any insights into my personality; they all seem baffled by me.
For your information, I forward a link that contains interpretations of my dreams that I have written.
My mental state has always been stable. I do not now nor have I ever been deemed to be a threat to myself or others. I underwent a forensic psychiatric examination at D.C. General by Diane Martin, MD on October 12, 1994, who declined to admit me. I have never had a psych admission at any time in my life. I have no arrest record. I do not drink or take drugs.
I accept my circumtances stoically, but inside I feel desperate, as if I have been buried alive. I have no friends. I have been diagnosed with schizoid personality disorder. I have only one relative in the area, a sister who lives in New Jersey. I see her about once a year and I speak to her on the telephone about once week. I feel very alienated from other people and would derive no benefit from most group therapies. A psychiatrist told me many years ago, "You might benefit from group therapy, but it would have to be the right kind of group. You wouldn't fit into most groups."
I was wondering if I could set up a kind of pen pal relationship with you. I would write to you from time to time about my concerns, my thoughts, and my feelings. You don't have to respond. I am unable to communicate effectively with my current psychotherapist or any of the residents I have seen since 1992. When I worked I had health insurance and was able to see an experienced psychiatrist/psychoanalyst named Stanley R. Palombo, MD (202 362 6004). I was able to talk to him and felt I derived benefit from my consultations with him. I believe that I am probably unable to work with most psychiatry residents because of their level of training, knowledge and experience.
