How did you feel making your first post here?

    It didn't worry me. The only thing that concerned me was the amount of people on here and that I would never be able to remember anyone. I'd read CoC. I've always been quite an independent thinker and hate being told what to do. So I actually felt quite smug that I was doing something that could get me DF'ed if anyone found out. I also know that no one is going to find out unless I drop a huge clanger. So the feeling of smug satisfaction continues.

    I was very nervous I made my first post in Nov of 2010. I was very scared and I was out by then. I left in 2008. I still get a little nervous but not as much.

    I never did an introduction thread either.

    I was excited but more so scared as hell and nervous, almost like I was doing something wrong. Almost.

    I got over it pretty quick though. And I did an introduction of myself. I love this place now!

    I had been out 6 yrs and one day I typed ex JW into Google and found Randy's site at Freeminds and it linked here. I felt guilty and was terrified a lightning bolt with my name on it was waiting for me next time I went outside. It took 2 yrs of lurking to finally get the courage to join and tell my story. -Leslie

    I felt great, it took several attempts over a month or so to be granted access to JWN, however, I was very surprised of the hostile attitude encountered.

    I was very excited to be able to post here. I'd given up talking to Witnesses, as I just assumed they were all just zombies, but I found this site while looking for something else- but found the answer here; so I found out there is life after leaving the Watchtower...

    INteresting - Jgnat, that you would be afraid someone would find out, given that you are not a JW, so there couldn't be any JW-type consequences (i.e. DFing) for it. I'm guessing you were worried about what might happen to your husband, given that he should be exercising headship and keeping you in control?

    The tentacles of this cult are truly far-reaching.
