My Experience Growing up as a JW
Are you from South Carolina? If so, *howdy* - so am I. If not, glad to meet you.
Congratulations on continuing with your education - sounds like you know what you want, and how to accomplish it.
As for our forum, a nice place - but open to all kinds of people & subjects. If you find yourself in a thread not of your liking, just click to another one.....literally pages of threads to choose to get interested in.
4300 odd posts? We gotta get a new name fer ya! Maybe a contest for the "verbosity" award!

Thank you for sharing your story. I look forward to hearing more from you in the future. There were parts of your story that sounded hauntingly familiar ... have you ever lived in KY??

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

I missed this when it first appeared but I came back to read it. I'm sorry you've had such a rough trot, but it's great that you are moving on with your life! I was brought up as a JW too, as were many on this board.
:) hang in there
Many of us here have bruises from life in the Watchtower society. I too, found solace and strength from studying in college. I am currently pursuing my masters too. School is what put the most damaging cracks in my belief system, especially philosophy and the earth sciences.
