I was a combination of walk out and burnout

More like burnout than walk out though. I think if I hadn't had my husband to emotionally support me when I left, it may have taken me much longer to come out of the madness.

I think the last two paragraphs are important and sad at the same time. Few have studied what happens to people who leave these destructive cults and there are few counselors knowledgeable in the field. This is where I wish there was more activity going on.
