    Many kudos!!

    ... anything that TELLS me what to believe gives me hives. I just got my mind and heart back, I'd like to keep it that way.

    Wow, that is just the sort of attitude to keep. Just don't necessarily think that you're done with it all from a personal standpoint. The JW indoctrination is very strong and may be tough to break.

    However, it sounds like you've been on your way out for a while. Besides any difficulties you may experience out of this, I'm very excited for you. The whole world has opened up to you. And I think you'll be greeted with a big ole bear hug!

    Welcome merfi..

    So sorry for all that you have gone through. It is so true that they try to take away your dignity. Many kudos to you for standing up and saying enough is enough.

    Best wishes to you and your kids on your journey to a real and happy life.

    Welcome to the board. You'll find great support & friends here. It never ceases to amaze me what a destructive force this "JW thing" is. Welcome to the real world! Hugs to you & your children.

    Welcome to the forum Rachel, those elders are not there to show sympathy for those that happen to suffer from serious problems, they are a joke really.
