Hello Fran and welcome to the forum. It makes me so sad to hear how you were treated even if it is an often told story. Rejection in the KH is so painful and humiliating. It also highlights the lack of love in there. I'm glad you are out and still have your family. It will take you a while to find yourselves, but you will, especially if you start communicating with each other, as you heal from the damage. Many of us were in our 50s when we departed the org and have successfully built new lives and careers. Soon it becomes possible to enjoy a wonderful freedom of thinking and talking and simply living.
