Harmon, Jasper



      D.O.B: 10/10/1989
      AGE: 23
      GENDER: M
      STREET ADDRESS: 125 Winslow Drive
      TOWN/CITY: Martinsburg
      STATE: West Virginia
      HEIGHT: 5'11"
      WEIGHT: 155lbs
      ETHNICITY: Caucasian
      DISTINGUISHING MARKS: I have a number of tattoos from my moving out, rebel against my mother phase. She still doesn't approve of them and my spiritual advisor says they're contributing to my toxicity but having them removed would mean letting people get close. I also have a few faint scars on my wrist from surgery, but you wouldn't see them unless you were looking.


_____________________________________
Medical History

Do you have any ongoing medical issues for which you require treatment or medication?:

I have no ongoing medical issues.

Are you aware of any allergies? If so, please list allergy, age of onset and any medications or treatments you require or receive:

I'm allergic to shellfish and have been since I was young. The allergy is mind, Benadryl takes care of it, and I've never been hospitalized because of it. My lips burn and my throat gets tight but I avoid it anyway.

Have you had any surgeries or invasive procedures in the past? If yes, please list reason and approximate age of procedure:

Only my wrist required surgery after the riot. I had the broken left wrist, a cracked collar bone, two cracked ribs, and a moderate concussion. If I tried to list the bruises and scrapes I had I would fill up this page.

Do you take any medications or supplements daily? Do you follow any treatment plans? Please list medications or treatments, and reasons below:

I take St. John's Wort three times a day, a once a day multivitamin, an omega-3 supplement, and an iron supplement. The last three are taken once a day after breakfast. I also stick to a strict vegan diet although I'm not sure if this counts. My spiritual advisor, Ms. Lawrence, says that by cleansing my body and keeping it free of chemicals and toxins my mind will be able to heal. It hasn't helped so far but she says that these things take time.

Do you use tobacco, consume alcohol, or use any other drugs including street drugs and/or prescription medications not prescribed to you? If yes, please list number of packs a day, number of drinks a day, and/or drugs consumed below:

When I went away to school I started smoking, drinking, and using pot. I got all the tattoos then as well. At the time I was fed up with the all natural lifestyle, and wanted to have as much fun as possible. I wouldn't call myself addicted to any of them, but quitting wasn't easy either. Since then, under the advice of Ms. Lawrence, I've cut out all of the above. She said they were poisoning me and contributing to my emotional and mental distress. I stopped drinking anything with in it caffeine as well.

_____________________________________
Psychiatric Screening

Please describe, to the best of your ability, your emotional and mental state of wellbeing:

(Note that the handwriting begins to get shaky and a little sloppy as Jasper writes in the psychiatric section.)

I should start by saying this goes against everything I believe in. I don't like taking medications, seeing doctors, or anything of the sort. I would rather take care of things myself and through the use of natural remedies. The problem is that they haven't been working like they should and I'm running out of options.

Ms. Lawerence calls what I experience "episodes" so I guess that's what I'll refer to them as. I can't say that I'm afraid of people because that's not true. It has nothing to do with talking, socializing, making connections or friends. It started with large crowds, like concerts or shopping malls on the weekends. These episodes cause me to start breaking down and they get worse the closer I get to the people. My instinct is to turn and run, to try and put as much distance between me and the people as I can. If I'm able to get away it leaves me shaken and upset but I'll calm down after a few minutes. It's when I can't get away that I just lose it. I feel like I'm going to be caught in the crowd and crushed to death. I feel powerless, helpless, and I can't control myself at all. I've started crying in public before and screaming hysterically. People try to help, but it only makes it worse. The closer they get the more afraid I am, and I just shut down.

I didn't think it was possible for this to get worse, but it has. The size of the crowd needed to set me off like this has gotten smaller and smaller. As many as six people in a moderately sized room starts making me feel uncomfortable and I do my best to keep myself away from them. I can't be near them. Logically, I know that six people aren't going to stomp me to death unless they're actively trying but I can't help the feelings. I'd rather just ignore them and stay inside. The doctor I finally started seeing says that because I give into the fears and let them rule me I've made myself worse. I know she's right because it's gotten to the point that I can’t be touched without feeling the same way. My neighbor bought my groceries and accidentally bumped me when he brought them in. All I remember about that afternoon was feeling like I was going to die. I fell to the floor and jammed myself back into a corner. I didn’t come back out until after he'd left.

Have you been diagnosed with any psychiatric or psychological ailments? Please list any diagnoses below, and the treatments or medications prescribed to you. Please include name of medications, dosage, and number of doses per day:

Six months ago my neighbor bumped me and I knew I had to do something. Ms. Lawrence's diets and remedies weren't helping and my mother's attempts at healing were only making me feel crazy. I made myself go to see Dr. Kendall, a licensed psychiatrist, for the first time. She's diagnosed me with two phobias: Ochlophobia and Aphenphosmphobia. The first is the fear of crowds and the second is of being touched. Because I'm not reliving the specific riot she's been hesitant to diagnose me with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I do have nightmares about it though and wake up sweating and shaking.
I'm filling this out because I'm not following the treatments from Dr. Kendall. I've flushed pills, lied in therapy about going outside, and made excuses to skip appointments. Even doing this right now is terrifying me because I know Hallowsgate will make me do all the things I'm avoiding. But I have to do this. I can't do it alone and if I stay with Dr. Kendall I'll keep lying to her and making things up so that she thinks I'm getting better.

Have you ever been hospitalised or referred to regular outpatient care due to these ailments or associated incidents? If so, please note where, and at roughly what age:

The hospital suggested I start therapy after the incident, but I never went. I just didn't want to think about it anymore. My sessions with Dr. Kendall are the closest thing I've come to outpatient care. It won't help me though. If I have to leave my house to attend group, I just won't go.

How have these ailments affected you and your life? Are there any major life instances you feel have been directly affected by these ailments, such as suicide attempts, criminal activities, etc?:

I have no life. That's as plain and simple as I can get. I don't do anything and if I were filling this out last year I would have been okay with that. I have to wait until the middle of the night to leave the house or I'll just lose it. I go the twenty-four hour super marts to get food if I even go at all. My neighbor helps me out and I think he understands me a little but I can’t keep living this way.

What is your social life like? Do you have many friends or relationships? How are your family relationships?:

Currently it's almost nonexistent. A few of my friends put up with me and will come around to watch a movie or play videogames but most have just given up. I don't go out at all. My girlfriend and I broke up last year and that was when I started getting the hint that I should stop.

Do you believe your life circumstances have contributed to any ailments? If so, what circumstances, and why do you feel they have contributed?:

I was a junior in college when my friends wanted to go to a DC protest. A close friend of mine is big into animal rights and there was a massive gathering that she had to be a part of. Push came to shove, literally, and the peaceful demonstration to animal cruelty turned into a riot. The police were already there to monitor but it went to hell when a couple people started stuffed animals soaked with red paint at them. The whole thing spiraled into chaos with the police pushing one way and the protesters pushing the other. I was caught in the crowd and unable to move anywhere except wherever I was being bashed between shoulders and bodies. I didn't know which way was up after a while, and the next thing I knew I was underfoot, being kicked and stepped on by panicking and angry rioters. I woke up in the hospital with the injuries described above and lucky to be alive. I found out that one of the guys near me had been stomped to death.

If you could change one past event that has happened to you, what would it be, and why?:

I wouldn't have gone to the protest. There is nothing else I wish I could take back more than that. Those few hours with picket signs were not worth the years I've lost.

Do you wish to rehabilitate from your ailment(s)? If so, how do you feel this would best be accomplished?:

I really do. I can't live like this anymore. Dr. Kendall says I need to find people I trust and have them help me get work on being close to people but I can't. It's not that I don't trust them. I just feel like I'm going to die if they get too close.

_____________________________________
Environmental History

Where did you grow up? Please list the location(s) and describe what it was like growing up there:

I was born in Martinsburg, West Virginia to Donald and Lydia Harmon. My dad had a regular 9-5 job no matter how much he hated it and my mom was an artist. On the weekends they'd go to fairs or markets to sell the stuff my mom made. They were bit different from the average families you'd find in that area but I never saw anything weird about it. They were who they were and that was all that mattered. Mom was funny about the pesticides in food so she grew whatever she could at home and almost always shopped organic. I grew up hearing about how we were being poisoned by our government slowly from both my parents. I do try to keep organic and avoid processed foods these days, but I've never shared the same views as them. I feel that I can be somewhere in the middle, respecting my body and the environment without going to the extremes that some do.

What was your family life like? Did you spend much time with your parents? Do you have any siblings? If so, what are your relationships like?:

I loved my family for everything that they were. They had their quirks but it was okay. Our neighbors with their Budweiser and pork rinds didn't get along with us too well but I was fine with that. I'd take my seaweed salad over spare ribs anyway. I have two older sisters: Alana and Bethany. We got along well enough. Obviously we had the typical sibling arguments but I got along better with each of them than they did with each other.

What was school like? Did you have any problems? Did you enjoy school? What were your grades like?:

I liked school even if it didn't like me. I struggled to get through class but I was never one for math or science. I went to The University of West Virginia and I did like it. I majored in English but I struggled through the last year. I had a lot of trouble getting through campus because of the episodes. I managed to graduate but I didn't go to the ceremony. I couldn't be there with so many people. The idea caused me to freak out.

Did you engage in any extracurricular activities, such as academic, artistic, or sporting clubs?:

Before the riot I'd belonged to a couple clubs mostly involving art. I like pottery and sculpture so I joined groups for that. I did a little photography as well. I quit everything during my senior year. I could barely handle the my roommates sometimes so there was no way I could walk to campus for a club with twenty or so people.

What was work like? Did you have any problems? Did you enjoy your work? What were your coworker relationships like?:

I've had a couple jobs but I can't do that kind of work anymore. I worked at a Starbucks near campus bit I had to quit. Slow afternoons I could handle at first but I got a morning rush and I just broke down. I completely freaked out and quit that day. Currently I transcribe medical recordings for a hospital. They send me the audio files, I type them up, and either email them back or mail a hard copy. I like it because I don't have to leave the house to work. I don't think I'd be able to work if I couldn't work from home.

Have you ever been convicted of a crime or misdemeanour? If yes, please explain, list conviction, and list any sentences associated with convictions:

I was questioned by the police for the riot but never arrested.

Lastly, please tell us about yourself. How do you feel about yourself and what you have done with your life? If you have committed crimes, how do you feel about those now? What are your hopes for the future?:

I've watched my life fall apart for years now and it's only getting worse. I know this but I've made excuse after excuse as to why I can't help myself. I know if I keep going down this road I'm gonna lose the rest of my life as well but I can't stop it. I need help.
