Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Timmy , Val, Chris and Todd
« on: March 21, 2004, 11:55:00 PM »
Timmy and Valerie,
Hey you two - I am sorry we were not able to connect when you guys were here in Dallas.  My uncle who I had told Val about took a serious turn for the worse on that Friday night and life seems to have been one crazed something right after another since then - one reason I have not been current here for about 6 weeks.  I cannot find the paper I wrote both of your numbers down.  Email them to me and the next time you are up when can grab a drink.  Timmy, I have decided not to use Straight things like COC's, MI's - thre are copyrights and other things I do not want to have to mess with.  I am going to be interviewing people and using quotes - if you are intersted in that - I would love to do that.  Anyone who wants to tell part of their story in Straight, the PTSS we have all suffered and how you have managed to survive, feel free to email me and tell me you are interested.  I will not be to that portion of my book for, realistically, 9-18 months but will certianly keep your name in my files.  [email protected] is my email.  

Chris and Todd,
I don't know if you all went through this whole thread but if you did not, please know that I have enormous regret for what a raging bitch I was in Straight and on staff.  I know I rode both of you all and I apologize for that.  I can tell you that I have been through years of therapy and deprogramming trying to resolve the guilt and shame I carry for inflicting the same pain I endured on others.  I have signed a contract to write a book about Straight and how horridly abusive and corrosive it was to my and everyone else's lives and souls that had to endure that place.  I truly hope that you all have been met with success, love and happiness in your lives today.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / hello old friend

I am heading to Florida for Monday's meeting Sunday.  Are any Dallas people headed there?  I am hoping to see some familiar faces for support if it is available.  Email me and maybe we can try to get together before hand.  [email protected] is my email and I will have internet access after I leave Dallas and arrive in Florida.  Thanks, Jennifer

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / I am fairly new and have a few ?'s....

I just found this wonderful outlet a few weeks ago.  12-9 will be 14 years since my commencement from Straight, Dallas and I have been followed by nightmares, cold sweats, guilt, regret and plenty of sorrow for following onto staff - all the things I have read here the last few weeks. It has been a freeing and cleansing time for me to find out I am not crazy and did not dream that place up - to find validation that thousands of others feel and experience the things I still do.  I have read as much as I can to try to understand the different things happening here.  Is there a lawsuit pending against The Sembler's, DFFA or any of those other groups related to Straight?  If not, is such a thing even possible since Straight,Inc per say, is defunct?  I am not so interested in recovering funds as I am in exposing places that still subject kids to those methods....when I read that in some of the posts I just seethed - I had no idea and am curious as to what action, if any, I can participate in to help in the cause of getting them closed.  A few other questions - what is WASSP? (not sure about that spelling) PURE, who is Sue Scheff and Carey Bock and are they detrimental to people finding support here or what is the deal with them?  I know I have more ?'s but any answers to these would be great as I am still finding myself sometimes lost and trying to catch up and not being able to.  Basically I think a forum for support is an awesome healing tool for all of us survivors and legal action to get copycat programs is great too - I just cannot figure out where each of these fall in regards to this forum - maybe it is both (that is my hope) and I just have not been able to find the right posts to answer that question.  Thanks for any insight and my support and congratulations to all of us survivors.
