A Psychologically Tortured Whistleblower's Diary

By Anthony C Heaford, 05 Sept 2021

I’ve prepared the two page summary copied below of my experiences resulting from my military service in Helmand to give to a counsellor my doctor is FORCING me to see. I’ve already had extensive counselling and their findings were my emotions are entirely rational given my experiences and ongoing stress triggers. 

My doctor is forcing me to go to counselling again which means have to explain myself again to two more strangers (counsellors) who will then offer me more counselling (that I don’t need) or anti-depressants (I’m not depressed). I know one veteran of Afghanistan who has already committed suicide when treated in the same way my doctor is treating me now.

Putting veterans through this is psycological torture & I believe it is a deliberate malicious action by my doctor. He is a close associate of my former commanding officer in the army, and a member of the same old boys club as my former employer who sent me to an al Qaeda front company in Yemen. Those are just two of numerous and more serious conflicts of interest he has in my case.

Truly, for some of us nothing is written, unless we write it
