    Is it better or worse since you left the Jehovah's Witnesses?

    My mental heath is much better, I do not worry about things as much as I did when I going. I hated it when people would answer and show how controlled they were by the Society. Some people were worse than others. Some comments were way out there and I hate to hear them. I hated sitting in the same HALL that a few brothers and sisters I did not like were. Towards the end I would get sick to my stomach before the meetings.

    My emotional and mental health is a lot better without the negative influence of the WTS. I no longer live in that JW fog.It 's really amazing how much we bought into their lies and let it control our lives as much as we did.

    Both the depression and migraines disappeared once I quit attending meetings. Guilt also gone.

    Anyone should feel much better upon abandoning the poisonous and oppressive ambience of the JWs, the pressuring demands, the loveless cold society, the endless lying of the FDS, once removed things will improve dramatically.

    Went from being suicidal after my son died to gradually coming out my JW stupor and finding real happiness. I was able to help my other two sons and we all are 100% happier than we were as JW's.
