You might remember me from last year's post Crazy Pastor, which I initiated. I just wanted to give guys a update on my progress since the last time I posted on this forum. First of all, I graduated from high school, and I am now in my third semester at my local community college. I have since moved out of my Godmother's house, but I still keep in contact with her from time to time. Presently, I am living in a transitional housing program, and I have been there for almost sixteen months until I can get a place on my own. There have been some highs and some lows throughout the year for me. For instance, I had to be admitted to a mental institution because of the one year anniversary of the traumatic events that took place. In the mental institution I was diagnosed with several mental disorders including PTSD, for which I have been put on several medications to abate the symptoms, but I have decided to permanently, with the nurse practitioner's hesitant approval , come off of my medication because of the adverse effects. Today, I find myself reminiscing about my old life in the Pentecostal church. The church itself has disbanded and is under a new leadership, the pastor's son. Even though I know that many doctrines of the church are fallacious, they still have a hold on me. I know from reading other post from these forums that it takes years to heal from my experience, but I hope I don't fall apart.
Thanks for reading,
