After devoting much of the last 4 years researching “How could this happen to me?” & sacrificing 11 years to the industry with a ‘lifelong’ bipolar & SMI certification, it’s clear that Scientology & the Industry have more in common than either will ever acknowledge. They’re both defined as cults with ‘bibles’, an autonomous ruling party, & the goal of control and lifelong revenue conduits by their ‘members’. Being drugged/ ‘going clear’ is simply force-feeding the Kool-Aid; many stay in from fear, stripped of self-determination and resources. Being drugged & brainwashed are identical, resulting in a hard bend of the knee that is impossible, in so many cases, to straighten up from. As I fought my way out with zero credibility vis a vis` the diagnoses and achieved the ‘trifecta’ with a CMO/VP guidance off neuros, vacation of bipolar, & decertification of SMI designation (while drugged, of course) because of liability (there was SOME ethical application; the process took 2.5 years) from multiple NMS AND anaphylaxis crisis, I was barreling along with no blue-print, fueled by outrage & terror; I was “Ride or Die” for my poor ravaged brain. Where are the others like me? I’ve only found one media story; he was a Navy pilot, falsley diagnosed in 2004, lost everything (like me), and has achieved a reversal, with ‘official walking papers’ (like me) 10 years later in Mo. Anybody else out there in the ‘Unicorn’ club? Here’s the thing; THEY reversed the “lifelong” bs, acknowledging my life facts before & during didn’t meet THEIR OWN criteria; I was being passed around the industry like a lab animal. NOW, they are forced to acknowledge my credibility; they’re metrics tell the story, they’re clinical notes didn’t correspond to THEIR criteria, the violent rejection of the drugs by my healthy brain was consistent for over a decade. My diagnosing doctor (2004) takes $65 grand annually from pharma (ProPublica; “Dialing for Docs”). It’s all there…and more. In 2015, when I insisted on seeing my SMI paperwork (a marriage counselor’s assessment, 2007), the supervisor blurted out “We don’t do things like this anymore”. As they say….it was a moment. MIA seems to have good intentions…but f*#k that….harder language & more confrontational positions are necessary. 60 Minutes expose`on the opioid crisis told HALF of our story. Our toe is in the door. Forget waves of public ‘support’, the info landscape is overloaded. It’s up to US to be bold and make our case quicker, harder, smarter, & aggressively. It seems that the movement is being entirely too PC, too careful, too conservative. There’s been so little progress; there’s nothing to lose & EVERYTHING to gain. But for the pesky (small, I’m told) seizures, I’m rebuilding & can’t stop talking about this ethical dumpsterfire.
