Have you been diagnosed as not having capacity?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I having a appointment with Mantel health worker for assessment on Monday 9th, I have done a self-assessment online which shown that I might have a Suspected Borderline Personality Disorder traits The Results.
Suspected Borderline Personality Disorder traits.
Your results in detail:Met criteria according to DSM IV*: 6
Met minor characteristics corresponding to DSM IV*: 2
Secondary Borderline indicators* found: 4
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This is what it said when I done the test online
What can you do?
In your life, you are obviously bound and sometimes set back by various aspects of your personality, from which you have probably never been able to free yourself on a permanent basis - but with a variety of therapeutic methods available today, you could actually work on and improve these boundaries quite effectively, even though it may take some time and serious efforts on your side. If you actually suffer from borderline personality disorder, I would stronly recommend you to begin with therapeutic measures as soon as possible to prevent a (likely) chronification or even worsening of your symptoms. So please contact a psychiatrist or psychotherapist as soon as possible to get a professional and detailed diagnosis, and if your results here are confirmed, to begin a therapy of your BPD - in most cases, this will be possible on an outpatient/ambulatory basis. It may be that psychotherapy can't immediately provide relief or make all of your problems go away completely. Certainly you may also have to overcome some difficult phases in your therapy. In the long term, however, you'll notice that a psychotherapy with a therapist that you trust, will improve your quality of life noticeably, and it will particularly help to improve and deepen your relationships with others, and make them more satisfying and stable.If you are already in psychotherapy, this was certainly a good decision, which hopefully helped you improve your difficulties in some aspects of your life. I wish you continued success with it!
Remarks on test results:If all questions were answered correctly and as accurately as possible, the test result should be quite reliable as the questionnaire is based on the latest available diagnostic schema, the DSM-IV. If you have your doubts or require utmost certainty, a thorough and personal assessment by a psychologist, psychiatrist, psychotherapist or consultant is required, as this is only a screening test as mentioned.Your self-assessment is also relevant: if your test doesn't fit your own perception, you may have to deal with another kind of personality disorder, a form of neurosis or contact disorder, or a temporary mood fluctuation may have influenced your result.*) If you want to learn more about borderline personality disorder and related symptoms according to the classification scheme "DSM-IV", a detailed (German language) paper about the subject can be found here.

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Ok, the problem is you knew it was wrong. Therefore if you knew it was wrong you sound like you are guilty of the offence. You downloaded, shared and opened the files. They may have been controlling but the key is you said you knew it was wrong. Therefore you are guilty.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

"The possibility is he will lose his employment because his employers are not aware of these proceedings today."
Sentencing Nichols to two years in jail, suspended for two years, Judge Simon Jack said: "The pre-sentence report says you take full responsibility for what you did.'Vulnerable' Hull man Josh Nichols 'sought sanctuary' in extreme pornographyBy Hull Daily Mail | Posted: June 05, 2015By Simon Bristow
SUSPENDED SENTENCE: Josh Nichols arriving at Hull Crown Court.SPARED JAIL: Josh Nichols arriving at Hull Crown Court.Gladstone Brookes
A forensic examination revealed they contained almost 1,000 indecent and extreme pornographic images and videos.

Nichols had used the file sharing software GigaTribe to send the material to other paedophiles.
In total, Nichols had 485 indecent images of children rated as Category A – the most serious – 290 at Category B, and 186 at Category C.
He also had five extreme pornographic videos featuring animals.
Nichols was thrown out of his home when his parents discovered what he had been doing and now lives in Sharp Street, west Hull.
The court heard his offending took place between November 11, 2013, and the date of his arrest.
He admitted one count of distributing indecent images, two of possessing indecent images, and two of possessing extreme pornographic images.
Joanna Golding, defending, said: "He is a man who has struggled with his sexuality and he has no difficulty now with that revelation.
"He sought sanctuary in the type of image that is detailed here.
"He has little in the way of social skills – he goes to work, comes home and is effectively a prisoner in his own house.
"He knew always there were victims in this case and he concedes through me that this type of behaviour seriously and significantly damages children."He has clearly had a complete shock to his system when he realised just how serious this addiction – and that is what it is – became."The possibility is he will lose his employment because his employers are not aware of these proceedings today."Sentencing Nichols to two years in jail, suspended for two years, Judge Simon Jack said: "The pre-sentence report says you take full responsibility for what you did."The picture seems to me you are a somewhat vulnerable young man with limited social connections, and that this was something of an outlet for you."You also have the difficulty that you are gay and have felt unable, hitherto, to be open about that, particularly at your workplace."That is regrettable, and it may well have led to your presence here."I take the view, taking all of this into account, I can, unusually, avoid an immediate prison sentence."Nichols must sign the sex offenders register for ten years and was made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for the same period.
