I’ve actually learned a lot from the traumatic experiences I’ve had there. I no longer look for a savior to my problems. There is no guru out there who has all the answers. We are all human and flawed and it’s up to me to figure it out. I’ve learned to stay away from people and places that tell you there’s only one path to contentment. Everyone truly is different. I’ve learned I have to grow to t

Hello again, On their application form it said something like “we are not mental health professionals and if you have a diagnosed mental illness we do not recommend this course.” I asked my sister about this and she ensured me that this didn’t apply to me and it was for people with severe mental illness like schizophrenia (even though I’m diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, obsessi

Thanks again for the opportunity to talk about all this. Glad you are doing well and feel content. I feel like I’m just beginning my journey 6 years after going to this place. I struggle immensely still but I will persevere. Unfortunately I have mental illness to tackle on top of this trauma. Take care.

Thank you. This is all exactly what’s going on and the way you put it is truly illuminating. It’s how I felt too when I was a part of it. I felt like I was tasked with changing the world, or at least everyone I knew. I thought I was saving lives. That’s literally what they told us. You have to risk upsetting people and disturbing “broken” relationships and any push back you get we were taught to

I really appreciate this advice. It’s hard to trust my instincts sometimes and it’s easy to start to think I’m just being dramatic and overreacting. Sometimes I wonder if I’m being too hard on her and being unreasonable by asking her not to bring up this place to me anymore. Yet, it’s really hard not to feel incredibly hurt when I’ve told her what it does to me and what it brings up in terms of t

I can’t exactly cut my sister out of my life but I get what you’re saying.

How exactly do you recover when you have a sibling who is still a part of it and brings it up regularly, retraumatizing you and bringing up old awful memories despite telling them over and over to stop bringing it up.

Hey there. I agree about that Val Kilmer quote. I was desperate and depressed and my sister sold me everything I ever dreamed of in a short amount of time. Like she had a secret way to be happy that nobody else knew about. It FUCKED me up and she STILL brings up that place to me. I’ll probably never trust her again. Hope you’re doing well and thank you.

Hey Ellen. I have not been on here for awhile so just seeing this. Thanks for the support. It surely is a long walk out of hell but I will be patient and persistent. That Val Kilmer quote is great and so relevant. Thank you again and hope you’re well.

Do you think I should write about my specific experiences there in more detail?

Lastly, I just saw you are looking for stories about ND people for your talk at the conference on cults and if you need someone I would be happy to talk. I am not part of any marginalized group though. Straight white dude here! I simply deal with ND diagnoses such as BPD etc. Thanks! Sorry for the obsessive responses, I think I am just overwhelmed by your incredibly helpful response above. Take c

I was wrong! You were part of the neurodiversity podcast. Sorry, I confused the two! I will make sure to listen to that one as well!

I am just now realizing you were one of the people interviewed in that "On Belief" podcast about LGAT's. That was INCREDIBLY helpful to listen to. Thank you kindly for also being brave and being a part of that. Take care.

Hey Priscilla, Thank you for the really thought out and detailed response. I appreciate it. I am still here. I have not physically harmed myself. I do think about it often. Yes, I do talk to the ones closest to me that I can trust. My wife is my biggest supporter and we regularly talk about our feelings. She is amazing. I am definitely not alone and have a few others too that I go to regularl

I’ve been suicidal most of my life. Been inside mental hospitals. Have had years of therapy. I’m done with professional help. It’s never done me any good. A suicidal hotline surely won’t either. The harm I’ve experienced from Choice center and the constant reminder of it through my sister is only the tip of the iceberg of my problems. I’ve struggled with borderline personality disorder my entire

Hello. I’m not sure how to even begin. I went to Choice center in Las Vegas in 2016 at the continued request from my older sister. She was and currently is a head coach there. I want to preface with the fact that I have always suffered from mental illness. I have borderline personality disorder and my sister knew this when begging me to go. Despite the numerous waivers I had to sign and the fact
