    Hello all. I have been absent on the forum for the past couple of months. I have previously been known on here as "mentallyfree31". I would like to take this opportunity to formally introduce myself. My nane is Steve Broome. I live in south central Mississippi. My family was in the BORG for 25 years. Last December 2009, i awakened and realized I was in a cult. After this realization, i attended a few more meetings and then walked away for good.

    I have been very busy over the past two months. I have enrolled in college for the first time in my life. I gave up college scholarships in order to pioneer back in 1995. I am planning on pursing a college degree in the medical field, perhaps physical therapy or nursing. I hope to narrow down my major in the next three months.

    Many of you already know this, but leavingwt is my brother. He was the first to awaken from this cult. I also have at least 3 good friends that have awakened as well, who are on the forum also.

    I will share more later, just decided today that I would quit lurking under an anoynomous username. So here I am. My identity is revealed. I am OUT of the cult, and the future has never looked brighter.

    Greetings to all of you! Here's a picture...

    AWESOME. Please don't try to think you have to figure out your major in the next three months. Take your general education courses, explore fields of interest, and you'll get there eventually. Don't pressure yourself. ENJOY college. Most of all, ENJOY your freedom from the cult. -LV
