I think you missed my point here. I am glad he has my husband and yes it is good he has something fill his time. What I am talking about is the guilt. There are days he just cannot walk, he cannot hardly get out of the house and he sits at home feeling horrible. Why because of guilt.
I clean for two older ladies one is 94 and the other is 91. Both are in pain like this brother and both are not JW's. They have had great lives and are happy. They both have problems getting around especially the 94 year old. But they do not feel guilt over it. Both are active as much or even more than this brother and the 94 year old has as many pains as the older brother. The difference is depression. Instead of taking them in field service I will take them to a movie or out to lunch downtown where they cannot go unless someone drives them. I feel like I am helping them more because the time they are in the movies they are not thinking of their aches and pains. Out in field service when this brother falls he is upset with himself and feel worse pain for days.
The older Brother has depression from the guilt of not doing more in field service. The ladies I clean for vote and go to lunch, shopping and other wise enjoy life. He does not because he is so sad feeling like he is not doing enough for Jehovah. I think that makes his pain worse because he is thinking about it more because he cannot do what he feels he must and that is sad.
See that is what I am trying to say the "truth" or JW's cause depression. They cause guilt by always telling us we need to do more. That is wrong peer and simple. Yes they let us turn in 15 minutes but what good is that when they lay such guilt on us anyway. So what you get 15 minutes in but all you hear about is some brother who does more then you do. It never stops.
This is what I mean this religion cause so much suffering and depression, can't you see.
