Just to let you know....
« on: May 06, 2005, 06:16:00 AM »
Just for everybody...

I apologize if I offend anybody in my posts; I tend to get riled up sometimes. Writing and venting helps me to see things more clearly. I am grateful for this forum, because since I left MMS I have just not thought about any of it. It is always painful for me to leave places and I was afraid I would be shut out because I left on a home visit.

After finding this forum, I have found opportunity to read other people's experiences and see different points of view. I have had the opportunity to vent my own feelings and also reflect on different aspects of my experience there, both in the forum and in my own space.

This has helped me a lot... I knew I was helped by the school, but shortly before I found this forum I realized how I was still living with the fear of punishment in part reinforced by the school...

since coming here, writing and reading these posts has helped me to sift through the good and the bad and see what I need to work through and let go of.

I guess what I wanted to say was thanks... to whoever started this forum and to EVERYBODY for sharing their opinions, views, experiences...

I also want to say that I may post things that are looking at things from one side, but a minute after, I will look at the other, most of the time I just spew out whatever comes into my mind... and none of my posts are meant to attack those who had a different experience at MMS.

I appreciate those who posted their experiences because it helps me realize why one of the friends I was close with while at the school seemed so different after leaving MMS... I felt really sad and confused about this.

Okay I'm done talking for now

I don't think that's right, I think it was someone named Kathy...

Whoever posted this - very nasty and very uncalled for. Ginger does get a bit harsh at times with her words, but this was still uncalled for.

You should maybe get your facts straight. She's not the one who started this forum. It was by a woman who has posted on Fornits for a lot time and who must be quite familiar with these types of programs.

Here's what I believe to be the 1st post on this forum:

 Mission Mountain School, located in Condon Montana, is a special purpose boarding school for girls ages 13 to 18 with behavioral problems. The school has been operating since the early 1990's, the owner and headmaster is John Mercer. Like many special purpose boarding facilities, there is little information available regarding the long term affects of this particular program on the students. Currently there is some debate over whether or not the program at this school is beneficial, so we are interested in hearing from people who have actually spent time there. If you are a former student, staff member or have other intimate knowledge of Mission Mountain School, we would love to hear about your experience. You are free to reveal your identity or remain completely anonymous.

A long time, not a lot time. A typo.

If you have a problem with what Ginger says, be clear and address it.  Seems pretty immature to say comments like 'she doesn't know shit' instead of arguing your point clearly and sensibly.

I have no idea what all of you are talking about. I just read this post from a girl saying that she can see both sides, and thanks to the people who posted their experiences, and then she gets a bunch of replies telling her not to bash someone and be nasty. I re read it and there is certainly no bashing anyone in this post at all. If you are so concerned with people being "nasty" to each other, all of you who replied to this in that fashion need to check yourselves.

Maybe she shouldn't have called people idiots, but really to reply to a post that is in no way bashing anyone with posts telling her to quit bashing so and so, and quit being nasty is pretty idiotic. If I was Aileen I would be pretty dumbfounded and confused as well that I was being barraged by posts for bashing someone in a post when I didn't at all.

The funny thing about all of this is if anyone is not happy with what is being said, then why on earth do you bother to come back? Just an outsider's observation.
