I know a little about your story; just the bits and pieces you have chosen to share on the board and by PM. I encourage you to write. You have much more to say than people realize.
A while back I wrote the first 20odd years of my life and posted it here on the board sort of as a daily diary entry. People were fascinated. Their comments encouraged me to keep going. Without them I would have stopped. Well actuially I did stop and have tried getting back into it but so far haven't gone very far - silly because I am really just starting the JW years.
My best guess is that we will all be fascinated into what helped form you into the person you are today. But a word of caution. Write only what you are really comfortable sharing. Write it for you but keep in your mind others will be reading it. Feel free to edit parts out that you aren't ready to share.
I know from experience that writing my story was healing. Sharing it was also healing because of the support I got after so many years of only telling things in bits and pieces.
I think too there are two ways to tell our stories. We can just get it all out, the day to day stuff along with the JW stuff or just the JW experiences as single episodes disconnected from the rest of our lives. I don't think my experiences as a JW are all that unique. I never met anyone on the GB. I nver had a chance to travel much. I did know Splane years ago, before he went to Bethel and who is now on the GB but can't remember him very well. So I don't have those stories. But as you say what makes our stories unique is the personal day to day living as a JW or ex-JW or for some, like me who had a life as a pre-JW.
Whatever you choose to write take your time. I did 16 daily installments. It was quite the task. But I felt good when it was done. Maybe it's time to get writing again.
Doug you are a person I care about. Do what is right for you. We might want to know but you have to be ready to share. I know that whenever you do tell your story you will help many others but most importantly it will help you if you can allow yourself to feel the hurt and heal from it.
luv ya whatever you decide -- Lee
