    It always made me rather sad. XD

    I used to listen to those tapes so religiously...I could talk along with them. Haha.

    Welcome, froginator. You sound like an articulate and sensitive young lady.

    I can relate to the flat emotions. I experienced something similar the first few years I left my abusive ex-husband. Now, I celebrate when my emotions match the moment, including crying. I was never a JW by the way, but somehow I can relate to the ex-JW experience. And oh yeah, I am married to a JW.

    I never went to a therapist, but I did manage to recover in my own way. I found that endless introspection dug me in deeper, especially in the early years. My salvation was to involve myself in my world and my community. When I was adding to my world (gardening is a great therapy) I felt much better. I'd had my fill of destructiveness, manipulation, and evil. I'm still allergic to manipulators, I can't stand to be in the same room with them.

    Hi froggi: WELCOME

    You are right, nothing 'horrible' had to happen to you for your whole JW experience to have been a waste. Just the fact that you went 18 years with no choice in the matter is enough.

    I bet you'll never let anyone else take 18 years from you.

    I love the avatar and it's great to have you!
