I survived hell. Looking for other 84-85 survivors. Just before it went co ed

I feel for all of you. I know and can identify with your pain. I read these stories bleary eyed and tired so forgive me if my typing sucks. While I admit my overall expierence wasn't for crap. I too must also give some small pieces of credit to those teachers and counselors that did there best to help the kids in need. While there were only a select few and less than one can count on a single hand. My hat goes off to them for doing what they could to topple the depths of hell.
I was a student that was there from 1984-1985 I was locked up for a year. I am looking for any survivors from that era a year before or after.. We may have been there at the same time. I had some close bonds with those kats... We kept each other sane while the insanity rose around us.

If anyone knows of M. Nelson he did two tours of the place.. Or anyone named Coots.. forgot first name sorry bro.
Or my Chicago friends that was able to leave with my leather coat. Peace to you bro. I know you used in good health after the one time I saw you in the windy city on your iron horse..
I read these sroties and it instantly brings me back to those emotions and feelings. No matter how much personal work I do on myself that time period will bring back some huge anger issue and raw feelings that just can't be stuffed.
The program stole a year of my life my innocence. The funny thing is that when I left I was still a rebelious child and only learned how to manipulate and do things much better than before and still be able to keep it under the radar..

Now that I am older and wiser I know I will never send my kids there or will do my best to recommend that any parent that is thinking of sending their chold to a place like PCS really needs to have their head examined. GET A Grip Parents. The issue is not your child it is YOU!!!

Your kid is missing something find out what it is and give it to them. After all the child is getting attention from somewhere. Get in your childs life. Be active don't let this rotten society raise your child. Spend time with them. Give them what hey need don't just ship them off. That is not the answer..

Take it from a survivor ... I KNOW........

Happy to talk to anyone about their expierence or ine for that matter.

Is the A Hole Jack still part of PCS? Does he still own the Holiday Inn? Having kids from the school work there for free????

Good luck to all the survivors...
