How long ago was your disconnection? 1999
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?
She was a close friend and roommate.

2. What were the circumstances surrounding the disconnection?
She joined the cult after being recruited into it during a personal hardship. When we did not support her leaving to join the Sea Org, she disconnected from her friends and relatives.

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?
I could have supported her joining the Sea Org, but I knew after research it was a bad thing. I am sad, but I hope one day she will see the light.

4. Was a formal disconnection letter sent? If so, what did it say? If not, how was the disconnection communicated?
Not to me, but one was sent to her mother.

5. In what way has the disconnection affected your life?
It has made me completely distrust the Cult of Scientology

6. What were your feelings at the time about the disconnection?
I was hurt, crushed and overall depressed.

7. What are your current feelings about the disconnection?
I am sad, somewhat numb, and determined to never see this happen to anyone else.

8. Has there been an attempt at reconnection? Were there any conditions for reconnecting? If there was an attempt, did you succeed at reconnecting?

9. If you are currently disconnected, would you like to reconnect? Do you believe it is possible, in your particular case? If not, why?
Yes, I would love to see her, but no one knows where she is.

Would you like to make any additional comments?
S, if you read this, TCB, and look for me. I am under my maiden name on Myspace and Facebook. You CAN find me, and I will do anything I can to help you leave.
