However... I think it's important to note that even an Anon can see eye to eye on some of the fears. And that's the only reason I'm posting this.
In the past, I've been a victim... so to speak... of "Psych abuse" as you scientologists would call it. Without going into specifics, I have some issues that do require some sort of treatment. And I've had a couple of shrinks to, in one way or the other, royally screw me over. If it's not financially, it's through medication. I don't even want to begin talking about my experiences.
I understand where a lot of ex-scientology kids are coming from when they have a very rough time trusting psychs. Now I am medicated, but not to the level I should be right now. At least not according to most specialists. The problems are minimum. But the problems do exist. Part of the reason I'm not fully medicated is because I too have a very hard time trusting psychologists and psychiatrists. I'm still trying to find one to trust. And believe me, it's rough. It's really rough. Thankfully, I have other outlets that I find therapeutic.
The problem I see with a lot of psychs is what you will hear from a lot of people; phony baloney diagnosis, over medication, self-interest, bribery from the pharmaceutical industry. You don't have to follow Hubbard to see that.
I can't say I hate the whole psychiatry field, as there have been psychologists that were nothing but good to me, but I do agree with a lot of the issues Scientology has against psychiatry.
I absolutely do not agree with how CoS goes about it, nor do I agree with LRH's initial reasons as to why he deemed psychs as devils, but this is not the place for me to criticize.
So, to all of you scientologists out there who are reading this, I just want to give you guys that much. I don't mean your leaders. I'll never give your leaders a lick of credit as long as there is blood pumping through these veins. This goes out to it's members and followers. Because I think you need to know, before you automatically deem us as 100% heretics, or SPs, whatever, remember that we're not entirely different.
We may not forgive, we may not forget, but for me, that doesn't just apply to the leaders of your faith's organization.
