I have just come across this forum, and I hope you don't mind that I have joined. I have read some of the posts and can relate to them, although from a different religion with no church building just a very mind controlling sect, cult whatever you want to call it! I have been so isolated for years here in Scotland, because there are no support groups at all. So I decided to build my own website, and have had a great response and feedback, mostly from the USA. would love for you to view my story and get back to me. Could the regulars tell me if this forum would be good for me? I hope to hear from you guys soon. Sorry about being a bit vague, but my story is a longish one and on my front page of my website.
