    My dear mother and aunt were always worrying about those pesky demons and their Father, The Devil.

    Did you obsess over the deminz???

    Yes, I thought they were going to infest my computer when I first came on this site.

    They left 2 magazines in my door last weekend. I tried to burn them but they wouldn't burn, they ran out the door with the smurf.

    I used to when I believed the JW horse shit. When I was a kid my mother always talked about "demon attacks" because of my music collection or some such shit

    why the hell would demons attack my mother becasue of my Nirvana CD?

    of course I experienced an episode of sleep paralysis and thought it was Satan. then I read a book other than a watchtower magazine and now I am not scared of demons, Jehovah or the WTS.

    funny how I was scared of demons but it was Jehovah that was gonna kill me for touching myself. I'll bet those demons would have been nice about that sort of thing......

    I believed with all my heart. In fact, I stayed away all night scanning the spaces behind open door hinges and behind shower curtains. Closets terrified me. I had no idea what one looked like but it terrified me. This kept up after I left the Witnesses. I finally felt safe in a college dorm. Hours were spent worrying about demons. The Witnesses said they will get you if you are good but also if you are bad.

    We had an English overseer who imported tapes from Great Britain that had teapots slamming against walls. My mom had baby fine hair. She loved it when wigs became popular. She was admonished for wearing her human hair wig. My mom proudly kept wearing her human wig to KH. She always listened so deferentially and then did what she wanted. Truth be told, I worried about that wig.

    Now I can laugh so hard that demons would infest a wig. Old clothing was a hazard, too. I was in a strange state one night and saw figures sitting on my bed. It was as tho they were from another world. Abraham Lincoln was one of my visitors. HA ---he would do the celebrity tour, not visit me.

    When I was a kid, I was sickly and had convulsions. My mother was told by the Congregation Servant that it must be the demons. They investigated and found a guitar my dad got from overseas. They burned it and I still got convulsions afterward. Eventually, I got better and the demons must've gotten the message.

    I once got a letter from Bethel.

    Does that count?
