I have been viewing this site for the past three weeks or so and relate to alot thats been said. I was born into the organisation, in a family of twelve children. Married for 22 years with 6 kids of our own. My family and I have been shunned by my family for over 6 years now because they don't understand mental illness. For sometime now I have felt that there was something amiss but have made excuses for their conduct for long enough. I was concerned that someone would recognise who I was from my login name but what the heck.

Hi one of 12,
With a name like that, I thought the poster would claim to be an apostle. Welcome to the forum!
Hey, welcome to the board 12!
Hello one of 12,
Welcome to the board,
Welcome to the forum! Hope to hear lots more from you!
This is a great place to heal.
Welcome! I hope you find lots of useful information here.
Welcome, 1 of 12. I take it that 12 children families are rare in NZ (rare most places).
I figure mental illness is the leprosy of the 21st century. JWs are afraid they catch it by being around people and they try to isolate them to protect others.
