Name or Alias: awakened by disbelief
How long ago was your disconnection? 5 years
Are you a current member, an ex-member, or never a member?
never a member
Did you disconnect, or did someone disconnect from you?
The other person disconnected.
1. What is (or was) your relationship to the disconnected person?
best friend/significant other

2. What were the circumstances surrounding the disconnection?
He said that he would re-appear in my life some day...he hoped that I could forgive him, but he felt that he had no other option to escape the unbearable emotional pain that he was feeling.

3. Were you given a choice about disconnecting? Was there anything you could have done to avoid the disconnection? If so, please describe the choice involved or what you could have done. Do you now feel that you made the best decision?
If I would have known then what I now know about borderline personality disorder and the methods of coercive persuasion that people utilize that take advantage of borderline behaviors as well as the psychological injury they cause, I would have definitely stopped that influence.

4. Was a formal disconnection letter sent? If so, what did it say? If not, how was the disconnection communicated?
verbally...He said that together we create pain and that he could no longer be with me. Just 3 weeks earlier he said that being with me 'felt right' and that our relationship made him feel 'happy and whole.'

5. In what way has the disconnection affected your life?
It has opened my eyes to exactly how big a threat scientology is to our nation. I was 'dead-agented' by Adult Protective Services officials who convinced my friend to file a petition for an order of protection against me by convincing him that my attempt to help him was 'stalking.' The judge stated on record that he's a scientologist and then proceeded to rule based on scientology doctrine instead of accepted law and practice, and no one cares that this has happened.

6. What were your feelings at the time about the disconnection?
I was devastated.

7. What are your current feelings about the disconnection?
He has suffered the psychological injury that I was attempting to prevent, and may never be able to develop a healthy relationship to outer reality, but I can still hopefully enable him to possibly recover from a serious mental illness and reveal the unscrupulous individuals who have harmed him.

8. Has there been an attempt at reconnection? Were there any conditions for reconnecting? If there was an attempt, did you succeed at reconnecting?
no

9. If you are currently disconnected, would you like to reconnect? Do you believe it is possible, in your particular case? If not, why?
I don't believe that reconnection is possible...he has been so manipulated...his opinion of me has been influenced from me being the best person he'd ever met to now being in fear for his life and suspecting that I may attempt to harm him.

Would you like to make any additional comments?
It sickens me that none of the government or non-profit agencies that claim to defend civil rights and liberties and to prevent mental illness and protect the mentally ill and to prevent suicide will help me.
