Twelve years ago I had a breakdown, attempted suicide. Later diagnosed as "Acute clinical depression" they said I probably had it for years. This was brought about by combination of personal circumstances and trying to "keep up appearances" as a JW, I was a Min Servant at the time. I had doubts for a long time about the teachings of the Watchtower.
Of course the attitude of the JWs was that of complete horror. I went before a Judicial Committee, got privately reproved. As usual their "treatment" for anything is "attend meetings and go on field service". No understanding that a person with severe depression just does not want to be around or speak to other people. As I was not making "progress", it might have helped is even just one of them had offered help. Not even any Elder made any effort to give support.
Anyway , because I was not making "progress" it was decided by them that I was a "spiritual danger" to the family, so they got my wife to get me out the family home. She even found a place for me, in the next town, and had to attend a different congregation.
You could say that was the day my wife left me. I still visited to see the children.
But the whole thing made me question even more about the WT which was supposed to be "Jehovahs loving organisation".
Eventually after much research I disassociated in 2001, which ended 30 years of being a JW.
My wife has not spoken to me since then. Even though we are only separated, we will have been "married" 34 years this year.
The Elders were so concerned about what my effect would have on family they got rid of me. But it backfired on them. Not long after I left, two of my children disassociated, three have never wanted anything to do with the JWs. Only my wife and two daughters continued as JWs. But I now have heard that those two daughters only now occasionally go to meetings.
