A foreign Ex-So

I got into Scientology at age of 16, rigth after my mom died. It kind of helped me at the beginning, gave some goals to me in life. I myself not against the religion itself, as I admit it is interesting and helped me several times. But I have diasagreement with that in the church people can scream at me, can tell you "Fuck you" or worse cursing, threats to send to RPF (what is almost or worse than a military prison), 2 free days in the past 3 yrs, 1 vacation (7 days given ) after 10 yrs of service and only once, almost lost my hearing once as they did not want to send me to a doctor while i was there a staff member - once they did not want to get an allergy medication on time - almost costed my life. You can not watch TV, have bank account, your passpost is taken away, you are monitored 24/7 - you get KR because you hate the food and from your own money you buy a burger at checkers. Secrets - we had a lot. I escaped 2 yrs ago. I was hiding pieces of clothes under a ceiling tile in a bag and accumulated enough and bag to run. The Prison Break guys were amatuers compared to me - I had to get through 7 security officers, several cameras and then make an imposible run for a bus while a security guy was chasing me on a bike. Then disappearing while they were waitin for me at the airport. That is me and I am just joining this site - I knew most of you guys, supervised some of these kids before too in courseroom. This is me in a nutshell - finally a bit free, still trying to understand what happened blaming myselg and the church too. this is me.

I'm very happy to hear about your escape from the SO, mrtampa! Welcome to these forums. Your description of the denial of personal freedom, the dangerous attitude on health care, and other harsh treatment in the SO sound quite familiar, I'm sad to say.
Enjoy your life today,
For time is fleeting.

Welcome to the board and to freedom. Take your time to re-group. I think an important piece advice given to someone else who escaped was "be gentle with yourself."

You know what this is called by Interpol standards; Human Trafficking.

When you are ready, please do bring this info to the proper authorities, with others if you can. Because that can get the attention of all the right people for us

I agree. They must pay for the suffering they put you through, when you are ready.

Thank for the answers, guys. I am getting back into normal here slowly - I remember when I was a SO meber i looked at the non-scientologist in a weird way - well now it is getting turned around the other way... I wrote a short report to INS as to holding back passports, making people to marry for the sake of green cards with a lot of names, etc , at least I got it off my chest.... Slowly I feel a bit more free eery day

Thanks for your post, and welcome mrtampa. I was never in the SO, but with the damage Scientology has done to me, I can't imagine what I would be like if I had. I'm really glad you got out. Please, if you ever get the chance, report what you know so we can get more litigation against the CoS going. With enough people speaking out, it's only a matter of time before the chruch cumbles.

Hi mrtampa! Judging from your name you were in Flag as well. I'm very glad that you got out. I was there 2001-2004, from the age of 11 to almost 14. I worked as a Tech Page in the Fort Harrison HGCs.
just when you thought it's all wrong it proved otherwise
