when I let myself be picked up by a Scientologist, who took me to the East Grinstead commune and tried to brainwash me?
I dunno, something along the lines of Well, it’s a bed for the night or It’ll all be alright tomorrow. But it wasn’t. Oh no, it was not OK in the morning.
Small huts, no privacy, Scientology in your ears day and night. I had four photos of Sharon and Tracey in my handbag, that they stole from me and never returned. I had some money – they took that too. They tried to take my sanity – no way, out of there. But that meant escaping. Really – escaping.
I had to wait till everyone was asleep before I could get out of bed and creep to the door. Open the door. Wait, nervous. Someone coughed, I nearly cried. Up the paths, very spooky in the dark. Through the trees and over the bloody fence, getting skinned knees and splinters. Hitch a lift. No bags, no clothes, no money.
But I did have my sanity and my life, and very glad I was to have those.
