    And thank-you so much for doing so. I am sure you have helped many people immensely. No-one should have to go through the crap that Scn serves up as normal.

    Geeze, Bea. This is probably the saddest thing I ever read about the whole stupid, life-sucking cult we were in. :touched:

    Thank you for all your writings; your story was pretty much the first thing I read when I woke up a couple years ago. It made quite an impression!

    I'm so glad you are now part of your own new happy family! :wave:

    .. And this reminds me.. My scientology freind from three decades ago said about his newborn son, albeit out of earshot from the day old boy: 'He might be someone you don't like!'

    Eh.. Claire asked in another thread about the first little signs of doubt.. I guess my freinds comment was that for me. (Didn't make me see the hideous flatulence of Hubbards philosophy though.. That happened years later..)

    According to Hubbard children are big thetans in little bodies. So this insanity is holy scripture in scientology.. Not the road to freedom or happiness. - It's the road to hell!

    Bea, you are breaking the cycle of neglect. Your daughter will have a different life, because you've chosen to be present for her. Even though you can't possibly do everything right (none of us can - even those raised by parents who were there), you're giving her opportunities that you never had, because of your love for her.

    Good job, Mum.

    I've thought all along what a remarkable person you are. Thank you for posting this.

    You're daughter is so lucky to have you as her mommy. :yes:

    Bea, it was lovely reading your post.

    The love never dies. My daughters are 26 and 29 now, and I would lay down my life in a heartbeat for them.

    Your daughter is totally blessed.

    Oh mothers.

    My mother loved Creedence Clearwater Revival. I thought the band had something to do with Scientology when I was a kid, hence they were twice as awesome!

    Bless you Bea, all my best wishes to you and your family. :rose:

    Pro-tip, fill their lives with music, if you can!


    Ah, will you look at that. A post where both Al and me are in agreement. The world shure is a strange place.

    Magic in the realm where your eyesight goes to dark. :vacuum:
