Gosh! This site looks different, but still full of great posts from great people.
I joined 6 years ago & met fantastic people when I was trying to learn about JWs to stop my best friend being drawn into the Watchtower thing. I learned so much from you guys - thanks. I had to leave the site after a couple of years without making any progress with my friend. I had to stop my research and gave up trying to contact him. I needed to clear my head completely of everything, as it was just too painful and became an obsession, messing up my head and affecting my wife & kids.
I've re-found this site tonight, and want to tell any old friends that there is a glimmer of hope after all these years. I want to tell those who knew me and my quest that I've suddenly had a couple of texts & emails from my JW friend and we're meeting up tomorrow. Very interesting. I though he considered me too dangerous...
By the way, I look young on that photo, which must be 10 years old, I'll have to update it.
