Name or Alias: Rachel
How long ago was your disconnection? from time to time, but specifically about a year ago
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?
My son is about who I write.....although my daughter and her family disconnected me earlier

2. What were the circumstances surrounding the disconnection?
My poor son.... I was a thorn in his side for a long time... after all, 30 years I had severed all connections with the church and requested (and received) my monies back.
Although I initially had a lot of professional respect for much of the technology that LRH developed in his early life... in later years, he became psychotic and the cult took over.


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?
Absolutely made the right choice, as I went through all kinds of hoops to enable my son to do what he wanted to do. I would have preferred, of course, that he would become educated (ph.d, m.d) but wanted to support him. But they are crazy, in a power-rendering sense!

4. Was a formal disconnection letter sent? If so, what did it say? If not, how was the disconnection communicated?
Absolutely... on colored paper. I was accused of stuff that was not true and I could have taken them to court, but really....the least contact you have with those crazies, the better.

5. In what way has the disconnection affected your life?
i was flattered and relieved. At least I could be honest now.

6. What were your feelings at the time about the disconnection?
I indicated that above....I am really quite proud.... after 2 comm evs, if you can believe... apparently the first wasn;t done according to 'policy.'those guys are a little tetched!

7. What are your current feelings about the disconnection?
I continue to feel honored!

8. Has there been an attempt at reconnection? Were there any conditions for reconnecting? If there was an attempt, did you succeed at reconnecting?
My son has left the f..Church. My daughter is hopefully neurotic, so I have no hopes for her recovery.

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 am not currently disconnected, at least in an area that I care about.

Would you like to make any additional comments?
I have really had an interesting and productive life, including completing a doctorate in psychology. But 'they' don't like educated women.... they are just plain educated, and rationale thinkers.
