    Welcome. Nice you were able to move on after the abuse and quit the mind controlling elders as well. Just a stupid question: how did your ex husband change from JW to drug dealer? Was he not reproved/DFed for this?

    Thank you so much for the positive comments and making me feel so welcome !

    In response to some of your questions:

    I have completely lost touch with my ex, but he was always one to put on a good "front". He was inactive for some years when I left him.

    My family is still "in", they do maintain a relationship with me and have been respectful in not bring up religion. I am very fortunate. After I left my ex, I never went back to meetings again. They did not like my ex and they adore my new husband and I am sure it is because they see how happy I am.

    I am always looking for a good read to understand more about what I went through and what others have struggled with. With the advice of this forum, I am currently reading Combatting Mind Control. I have not read Searching for Christian Freedom - but it is on my list.

    Thank you again for the warm welcome - I am happy to be here and finally participate !

    Hello FLN and welcome !! You remind me a little of myself except by your account it would seem you are very much younger which is great because you havent wasted too much time before finding a good man and a good life. Well done to you !!
