Recovery can be a difficult path

I found that after I left Hickman, it still caused me problems. My reputation suffered in the Jewish community.
One time I was in a Jewish bookstore on LI, NY and someone still thought I was in the group (a lot of Hickmanites used to go to that store), they talked behind my back and said something about how they wished we wouldn't shop there and they didn't need us.
And at Lubavitch, I heard some rabbi say how they could never trust us again. But then again, can I trust them? I got murdered for my ideals, beliefs etc in school and I didn't see them anywhere around during the time I was in good shape.
