Rose, I am glad you have made so much progress. I, too, was in a cult and suffered from it, although I was only emotionally and psychologically abused and repressed, not abused in any other ways. Nonetheless, it was a cult and it was difficult getting out, only having 3 friends who were not in that church, and starting over.


Now, I get support from multiple sources, including my counselor, my PDOC, my wife who I did not know then, my friends who all accept my non-religiousness, SMART Recovery, PsychCentral, Secular Buddhism (I am not a Buddhist, but I practice some of their techniques and I meditate daily now) and meeting new people.


Recovery is awesome. I'm glad to be in it with you.
