Preventing Subliminal Distraction episodes, mistaken for mental illness, is simple and free.

These pages are scans of hospital records from 2002 and 2003.

There are three records, scroll to the bottom of the page for all three.

Comments pasted on the pages are positioned so there can be no mistake that the comments are added,

not part of the original record. My comments also have colored highlighting.

This was done so these pages, mailed in letters, took less space than an additional page of explanations.


Other pages indicating medical testing  will follow as soon as they can be located and scanned.

There was extensive testing which shows Connie did not have a physical problem.

In addition a letter, to follow, shows she had a very low MMSE score but had recovered within about 90 days.

That would not have been possible if she had a brain disease.


The speed of  onset for the severe episode, suddenly with no warning,

essentially overnight, matches the speed of onset for Subliminal Distraction episodes.

At the time of these evaluations I knew what had happened but did not have the correct name for the phenomenon.

A design student from Australia emailed for permission to use my site in her "thesis" and supplied the correct term.


June 30, 2002 the payroll office of the University of Alabama moved from the third floor to the basement of Rose Administration building. Connie got a new workstation without Cubicle Level Protection she had in the third floor office.

She had a psychotic break within thirty days.  

These pages are from her hospital records from North Harbor Pavilion. The psychiatric facility is located in a hospital wing across the river from Druid City Hospital in Tuscaloosa. Considered as a floor for Druid City, the building was previously the hospital facility for Northport, Alabama.   It is a separate, full hospital.


Hospital Records


Note that Dr Raisani was Dr. Bonner's office partner. Bonner had resigned the case without referral. The poison control center made the appointment at UAB. (University of Alabama Birmingham.) 

Address information and phone numbers were not blacked out because we have not lived at that address since 2002.

Connie had severe reactions to drugs and began to decline. She died  January 13, 2010. Although we found a doctor to treat her without psychotropic drugs we could not reverse the damage they had done. Emory University Hospital had a program to assist local doctors with diagnosis of geriatric memory and psychiatric problems. The Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital at Emory referred us to a doctor in Snellville Georgia who saw her until her death.





 This arrangement had Connie's adding machine on the left work surface. Her computer was to the right of the chair. The chair is facing the computer in the picture.

There was a path that workers used to visit payroll by walking between these two work surfaces. The path is at the back of the desk on the left in this picture, and goes to the left. Connie said they often bumped her chair when walking through.



The blur in the lower left corner of the picture is probably a finger. I had caused so much trouble with the administration that the university president banned any contact with me. I gave an employee a new $100 digital camera and Connie's annual staff football ticket order form for these pictures.


This next picture is taken from the chair in the first picture looking back 180 degrees from the direction of that picture.

Food Service Table

Look at the bottom right of this picture.   There is a low fabric covered panel that supports the horizontal work surface holding her adding machine. That panel should have been large enough to block her peripheral view of people coming to the food service table.


As shown the panel should have blocked her changing peripheral view of that chair. As she worked turning her head, movement of someone seated in the chair would have been subliminally detected.


Connie had full Cubicle Level Protection at her enclosed desk workstation on the third floor. The new office had no such protection. She began to hallucinate that cameras had been installed to watch her at work.  I later found an annual performance report done in early July that said she had begun to have trouble making decisions within about 15 days of the move to the new office.

The payroll department had used 'work-study students' to help Connie audit insurance deductions from individual payroll accounts for employees. There were sometimes three students inside her cubicle area. That meant she had low level Subliminal Distraction exposure during the times she had those students helping.

The University system in Alabama has an in-house construction service to build new facilities. They had no one trained in Systems Furniture to correctly design "divided room" workstations. I wrote them in 2003 but got no response.

Connie came home in late 2001 with a story that someone in Rose Administration Building had a nervous breakdown. I knew of the engineering design problem from my college experience in 1966 but did not understand anything about it other than it had been discovered. It appeared as a novelty problem from business offices on an episode of 20/20 Downtown in the 1990's. At that time a junior college course which explained but did not name the problem was fresh in my memory so I recognized it on the TV show.  I had taken the psychology class while trying to recover from massive spinal fusion surgery. The explanation of the physiology involved was included in that course.

Note the remark that she is reading a book in the psychiatric observation room. That would have allowed additional Subliminal Distraction exposure while in the hospital to keep the psychotic episode ongoing.

This was early in the episode and while I knew what had happened I had no information about it.   

There are several things I would have done differently had I known then what this investigation turned up.
