Hello Greg and Kevin,

A very interesting post.

The purpose of group therapy is to help people with (in this
case) common experiences live normal lives.

Perceived abductees do not refer to the people responsible for
their presence in the group?

It would be very surprising that any group therapist would
refuse such a connection. After all, the victim's hope resides
in resolving the issue with the tormentor. Anger and despair
stem from helplessness: the soul topples over the edge when you
surrender your fate to the torturer.

The key is you and the SOB responsible for your feelings, the
link between the two of you, the recalled abject submission you
couldn't help to feel and, somewhere deep inside, the guilty
need to do it again.

I believe anything should go if it leads to some serenity. If
hating aliens or loving them give you this edge, go for it.

But discourage any attempt to get a grasp on _your_ reality?

Hair raising.

Regards,

Serge Salvaille
