Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, but I've been out of town. This is Pamela Atkinson.

Your mom seemed really retticent to explain why you had left the house, but by the time you were out of the house, I had almost completely given up on going to the meetings. They were so superficial. Everyone was trying so hard to make it look like everything was going perfectly. I brought up some of my problems with the program and people looked at me like I was crazy.

Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with deciding to continue self-injury, or deciding to stop. I don't cut anymore, not because I grew out of it, but perhaps because I grew past it. Either way, I don't think there's anything wrong with it, as long as you're careful.

I'm really curious what the petition was about. Is there any chance you could go into detail about it in an email?

I really am not comfortable going into what it was about.

To sum it up however...

I wasn't allowed to go somewhere (this was when I was at North) because of something I had done when I was a kid.

I thought this was wrong and at the time believed that it was the programs rule. So I wrote up a petition and started circulating it around.

Word got back to Ron about me doing this petition. And thats when me, Ron, and I believe one of the Glenda... I think B. but I'm not sure it was a while ago... I just remember Ron being there. Thats when they threatened me about it if I didn't rip it up... which I had to do right then...

It was in no way a physical threat...to me it was worst... the threat of staying longer and my friends also staying longer... and staff who I was friends with getting fired... I much rather would have preferred a beating! :-)

It was only after they threatened me with this that they explained to me that it wasn't their desision but the places rule for us being able to go there.

I still however believe that it was not right for them to threaten me. I wasn't trying to change it though that would have been nice... I was expressing myself and getting my point across. That certain things should not be held against you especially when the program teaches you to move on, forgive yourself, and... since Ron was the one who told me...and I quote "This will ever be held against you." I was in izo. at the time and it was when I first came to the program.

Haha... After he threatened me... I turned around and called him a liar and reminded him of our little talk in izo. Then to alls surprise he actually did apologise for lying... not for the threat though, but like I said before I kept my mouth shut on that one... I'd already been there two years and I wasn't about to be there any longer or keep people I cared about there longer either!

I am still astounded at how much Rom lied to everyone. Thank you for sharing.
