    How did you cope with all the mess they put into your head?

    Really need to talk to someone.

    Cannot say I have ever been in your situation hun. :hug: however, you survived and got out. Which means you know what they put into your head is not true.

    I was abused by a religious cult. I understand what you're talking about. It happened when I was 4 years old lasted into my teens. You can PM me anytime.

    I went through something like that. I try to remember a lot of what I was told and taught was not true, but to scare me into thinking I needed him, and to keep me from telling people that he sexually abused me. I still have times it breaks me down and I get terrified beyond belief. I doubt anything I said helps, but you aren't alone. :hug:

    I'm thankful that I never had to experience this. I can only imagine what it's like.

    My sister spent 4 years of her life in a religious cult, but left it about 3 years ago and she is doing ok now. There's a lot of brainwashing that goes on when someone gets sucked into a cult. They tell you what to eat, how to dress and isolate you from your family and friends. They're awful.
